Starting October 1 — that’s Saturday! – voting will open via the Chick-fil-A App, and friends like you will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite charity group. The winner of this vote will receive a $75,000 grant from Chick-fil-A!

That’s enough money to open a brand new center and keep it open for many years. Or, with the help of local partners, the money could be used in multiple communities to open several new centers. Either way, it means that more communities and more kids can be served by our award-winning Leaven programs.

In short, it will help dozens of children receive the afterschool tutoring and mentoring they need to succeed.

But we need your help! No – we need your vote!

It’s just three easy steps to vote today:

  1. Download the Chick-fil-A app from the App Store or Play Store. Or go to https://one.chick-fil-a.com/ to download.
  2. Register on the app.
  3. Vote for The Leaven (West Region).

Voting Opens on October 1st and runs for approximately 10 days, so be sure to vote early, and tell your friends to vote, too!

This is a simple way, at no cost to you, to support The Leaven. Chick-fil-A has been a wonderful partner to The Leaven and we are so proud to have been named a Western Regional Finalist. By join with us today we can win this vote and make a HUGE difference in the lives of kids throughout California today!

Thanks again for helping kids and communities rise!
