We didn’t want to reinvent the wheel.
Recognizing the value of the efforts already at work in our community, Levé selects an established local nonprofit to partner with each year. Invested in the success of the nonprofit’s mission critical work, we provide financial and volunteer support throughout the year, culminating in our signature Charity Ball event. The partnership provides our nonprofit partner entrée to a new generation of donors while introducing this new audience to the needs of the local community, hopefully creating bonds that continue long after this initial exposure.
“The tradition started as a college party for a good cause and evolved into a grown-up philanthropy that shatters expectations. Levé raised a record $36,000 last weekend, despite the battered economy. A bunch of that money came from people younger than 40, a group notoriously hard to reach.”
