• 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.”

  • 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

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

    - Devereaux Dion, Chief Development Officer, Meals on Wheels People

  • 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.

     

    - Sophie Banner, Marketing and Communications Manager, “I Have A Dream” Oregon

  • Schoolhouse Supplies is honored to be part of the incredible network of women and nonprofit partners who make up the Levé community. It’s inspiring to see so much collaboration and impact happen in such a short period of time.

    - Jen Barth, Executive Director, Schoolhouse Supplies

  • We found communications with Levé board members very upbeat and responsive.  Felt like a valued partner throughout the process.  Very proud to be aligned with Levé.

     

    - Tracy Madsen, Development Director, YWCA

  • 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].

    - Paul Mortimer, VP of Advancement, "I Have A Dream” Oregon
