Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to learn more about Golden LEAF’s 20-year history

In honor of Golden LEAF’s 20th anniversary, the Golden LEAF staff have taken on challenges to help people learn more about the organizations and projects the Foundation has supported over its two decades. Golden LEAF President Dan Gerlach is participating in the “NC 100 County Challenge” and the Golden LEAF staff are participating in a “LEAF Prints” challenge. We will also be posting more about the Golden LEAF Scholarship programs throughout the year under the “20 Years of Scholars”.

Golden LEAF President Dan Gerlach challenged his friend Executive Director of the North Carolina Association of County Commissioner Kevin Leonard to visit all 100 counties in 2019. In 2019, Dan will be traveling the state, visiting sites and people assisted by Golden LEAF grants.

Golden LEAF program staff Marquis Crews and Marilyn Chism visit Edenton-Chowan Schools while working in Elizabeth City. Golden LEAF has awarded just over $1 million to support STEM and digital access programs.

Golden LEAF staff will also be participating in a challenge to showcase past grant awards. The mission is for staff to visit 20 Golden LEAF-funded sites by October 22, 2019, Golden LEAF’s anniversary. As part of this challenge, Golden LEAF will highlight what the staff does to support the mission of Golden LEAF.
