The Leon Levine Foundation is challenging people to give to arts, science and history education projects in the Charlotte area.
The foundation’s $150,000 challenge will match donations to education projects that align with the N.C. Common Core & Essential Standards.
These projects, listed on the website www.power2give.org, support summer camp experiences, after-school enrichment programs and in-school programs.
“We are excited about the opportunity, through this challenge, to provide students access to further develop the artistic talent and critical thinking skills that contribute to a well-rounded education and foster a lifelong joy of learning,” said Suzanne Fetscher, president and executive director of McColl Center for Visual Art, in a news release.
Www.power2give.org started last August to provide attention to, and an easy means to donate to, area projects. So far, 149 projects have been funded with more than $269,500.
