Leacross Foundation Grant Announcement

Investing in education benefits us all. We could not accomplish our goals without the support, involvement and enthusiasm of our generous donors – donors like the Leacross Foundation.

Leacross recently donated $30,000 to iSisters in support of operational activities. Partner recruitment, course improvement and evaluation, volunteer training, program management, and donor stewardship – these efforts are at the heart of our activities.

iSisters is sincerely grateful to Ms. Rolsyn Bern, President, Leacross Foundation, for her involvement with numerous charities and serving to educate women and children in society believing that each individual can succeed.

With the Foundation’s support, iSisters can continue to help hundreds of local women achieve economic stability.
