Foundation History

The Levines’ desire to give back to the community that brought them success has led to a legacy of philanthropy in the Charlotte region. The Leon Levine Foundation was created as the vehicle to fulfill that legacy. We embody the same vision that Leon Levine had when launching his business ventures: identify a community need, determine how best to create positive change and invest effectively.

Throughout our history, we’ve focused on committing resources to some of our society’s most challenging issues by funding the most impactful nonprofits from programs that promote healthcare access and cancer research to programs that help families reverse generational poverty.
