In celebration of the Leadership Portage County Class of 2020, Delta Systems has pledged a $2,000 match to support Center of Hope. Let’s keep it the Center of Hope!

TO ALL LPC ALUMNI - Join us in meeting this fundraising challenge supporting those in our county who need it most. Covid-19 has created a tremendous need in our county. Every day, the Center of Hope serves over 200 meals and fills over 30 pantry orders. Let's help them continue their good work.

Click here to donate. In order to be counted toward the match, please designate Center of Hope and dedicate the donation to the LPC Alumni Match (see below). The match ends May 31, 2020, so make your donations NOW!

A very special thanks to Lissa and Tim Barry (LPC '20) of Delta Systems, Inc. for their very generous match!

“I thoroughly enjoyed my experience as a member of the 2017 class of Leadership Portage County.  The impact that the program achieves will allow individuals to not just learn about the many positive things the county itself has to offer, but also to address and help solve problems of need within our own backyard through the class project.  I also highly recommend this program for anyone looking to expand their professional relationships with individuals that will last for many years moving forward.”

LPC Alumni Fundraiser Benefitting Center of Hope

Applications are currently being accepted for the Leadership Class of 2021.  

Every year Leadership Portage County identifies a select group of leaders and potential leaders in Portage County.  They come together as a 'class' to experience opportunities for personal and professional growth. In addition to exploring leadership in general, specific emphasis is placed on community leadership.  Program participants 'go behind the scenes' in Portage County to gain a deeper understanding of the community where they live and work.  The ultimate goal is to create positive change in Portage County by stimulating increased interest in community involvement and building a network of informed committed and dynamic leaders.
