What We Do

Unlocking Potential

Through Literacy and Leadership Opportunities

The Leacock Foundation is a needs-based organization which works to address the educational priorities of children in need both locally and globally through programs and funding designed to support academic success and socio/emotional well being. We also create opportunities for youth to contribute positively to their communities through leadership programming.

Our funding supports The Get Ahead Project schools in South Africa’s poorest province, the Eastern Cape. In Toronto, our programs run in underserved communities with higher rates of child poverty and unemployment: Scarborough, St. James Town, Black Creek/Humber , and Thorncliffe Park.

The Leacock Foundation is the funding catalyst for schools to create meaningful opportunities for youth to stay engaged after-school by learning, sharing, participating, and volunteering, with the ultimate goal of fostering collaborative, pro-active learning communities.
