A brand new model of philanthropic support has been created in Appalachian Ohio!
Leadership 100 is a working capital campaign modeled after the way private sector businesses go public to support their expansion goals through the sale of shares of stock to investors. FAO exceeded its goal of raising 100 shares of $32,000 apiece by raising more than 106 shares totaling more than $3.4 million.
Each “share” in Leadership 100 is a gift to underwrite the operational costs of FAO’s work with the region to build $100 million in new philanthropic endowments. Since Leadership 100 was launched in April of 2014, more than 75 individuals, businesses, and organizations have become shareholders, together providing support for FAO’s expansion.
With support from Leadership 100, FAO will launch a $100 million campaign, which will include work to build five regional grantmaking endowments called the Pillars of Prosperity.
Leadership 100 has only been possible because of our shareholders. Listen to what a few have said about why they became a part of Leadership 100.
