The Freddie Mae Leverston Leadership Foundation - See Events & Fundraisers
On behalf of The Freddie Mae Leverston Leadership Foundation, FMLLF, we welcome you.
The FMLLF realizes building a legacy is a painstaking endeavor that requires real commitment, hard work, perseverance, persistence, and passion. Any endeavor has the ability to uplift humanity when conducted in a spirit of altruism and excellence. Each of us has a role to play to make a difference in the world one student at a time by having a broader concern for humanity as a whole. The past years have been rewarding and exciting mentoring young people while staying true to the vision, mission, and core values. The FMLLF looks forward to seeing the fruits of its labor realized in the years to come. Nelson Mandela said it best: "What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that determine the significance of the life we lead”.
