• welcome

    Each year, Levé partners with a different local nonprofit to provide financial and volunteer support throughout the year, culminating in our signature Charity Ball event. 

    “The tradition started as a college party for a good cause and evolved into a grown-up philanthropy that shatters expectations.”  

mission

Levé: from the French verb lever, meaning ‘to lift up,‘ our mission is to lift and support local nonprofits, working together to address the most critical needs of the Pacific Northwest community.

  • I have always admired Levé’s determination to really help organizations by taking on all of the planning of the Charity Ball. It is rare to have an event benefit an organization where the organization isn’t asked to use resources to support the event.  It is really unique and amazing the impact Levé makes.

    - Jenny O’Bryan, Director of Development, Children’s Cancer Association

  • As important – or even more important – than the financial impact has been the prestige of being associated with Levé and the inspiration from Levé to form the Young Leaders Collective [our young professionals advisory board].

  • We had a great experience working with Levé. Levé is doing great work in our community.

  • We have been honored and impressed by our association with Levé. Your pre-event communications, including educational pieces about the nonprofits you support, have been great.  And, we appreciate that you continue to support and promote the work of your past partners through social media and newsletters.
