The Aspire to LEAD Giving Society is an opportunity for you to make a long term difference to the youth we support. There are three ways your support will result in an impact: you can be a Youth Sponsor, Sponsor of 10 Youth, or Program Sponsor.
Why become a giving society member?
Making an annual gift through the giving society levels allows you to play an important role in supporting Asian American LEAD’s programs for low-income and underserved youth. It allows for staff to deliver powerful programs that positively impact youth.
What does it really mean to be a giving society member?
Making an annual gift at one of the giving levels allows you to play an important role in supporting low-income and underserved youth in the DC Metro area. It impacts the lives of these youth to make decisions about their education, increase their sense of identity, and set them on a path to become future leaders.
Currently the Aspire to LEAD Giving Society members have supported 100 youth with the tools and opportunities to define themselves and their own futures.
