Due to COVID 19, the Leightman Maxey Foundation is taking a proactive funding approach in an effort to best support those nonprofits whose work is directly aligned with the Foundation’s mission.

In lieu of the September 1st application cycle, the Foundation will solely be making discretionary grants. If your organization is awarded a discretionary grant you will be notified no later than July 31, 2020.

It is the Foundation’s intention to resume its typical application process for the March 1, 2021 funding cycle.  At this time, applications are scheduled to become available for that funding cycle on December 1, 2020.

Our mission is to support organizations that provide relevant educational experiences related to Careers, Finance & Nutrition

The Leightman Maxey Foundation is a private foundation that distributes grants in support of nonprofit organizations whose services are aligned with the mission of the Foundation. Funding priority is given to those organizations serving ‘at risk’ clients.

Grants may be awarded in any of the following three impact areas:

CAREER EDUCATION: work programs, employable skills programs, employment seeking preparation

FINANCE EDUCATION:  budgeting, judicious use of credit, living within one’s means

NUTRITION EDUCATION:  shopping for and preparing healthy, economical meals
