Human Services

The Leon Levine Foundation works to ensure everyone in our community, who has the desire and motivation, has an equal opportunity for success. We focus our investments in organizations that serve people who want to make a better life for themselves and their families through education and hard work. Our grantees make the region stronger by increasing access to affordable housing and a living wage, improving the lives of children and families, and providing quality services to seniors and veterans.





Leon Levine’s Legacy

“My ability to help those less fortunate or down on their luck is a cornerstone of my giving. Many of these folks shop or have shopped at Family Dollar Stores and have helped make it successful. For this reason and countless others, my foundation gives back to these hardworking people.”

As a self-made man, Leon Levine recognizes the importance of hard work and perseverance while understanding that people sometimes need a little boost to reach their potential. Giving back to these hardworking people is a primary focus of his philanthropic activities.
