Why Give?

A strong culture of giving is critical to our ongoing success.

21st Century Leaders provides youth leadership development programs to hundreds of high school students across Georgia each year. Revenue generated through program fees do not cover the total cost of delivering these programs to youth. 21CL greatly depends on our generous donors for support. Atlanta’s community leaders have embraced our vision and understand that strong support is required in order to sustain 21CL today and well into the future.

21CL remains committed to creating the next generation of leaders. Your gift is an investment in the future – for 21CL and for all of our youth.  Your commitment of time, talent, and treasure allows us to continue our work of inspiring youth to take on leadership roles in their schools and communities, seek out new opportunities, and give back to their communities. We are recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c) 3 organization, and your contributions are tax-deductible.

When considering a gift to 21CL, there are many opportunities that will allow us to maintain the highest standards of programmatic excellence for deserving youth. By supporting 21CL, you are helping to sustain our effort to provide a quality youth leadership development program that fosters innovation and creativity, problem solving and critical reasoning skills, interpersonal relationships with a diverse group of peers, and social responsibility, while supplying essential funds for:

  • Program fees for low-income youth
  • Experiential, hands-on learning opportunities
  • Leadership Connect online program curriculum and technology
  • Program materials and curriculum
  • Means to take advantage of unexpected learning and enrichment opportunities
  • Financial security to meet unforeseen challenges throughout the year
  • Staff professional development opportunities
When you give to 21CL, you’re helping inspire youth to lead. We list several options below and encourage you when planning a gift of great impact to discuss the most advantageous means of support with your legal and financial advisors. Regardless of how you give and what you give to, 21CL is grateful for your support.
