The Leichtag Foundation Announces $300,000 Matching Gift

Interfaith Community Services is honored to announce that the Leichtag Foundation has pledged a matching gift to double the value of each donation given to us, up to a limit of $300,000. This generous, unrestricted match will provide support to Interfaith’s programs most in need of support, plus allocate needed funds for the Carlsbad Service Center and immigration legal services over the next two years.

The Leichtag Foundation honors the legacy of Lee and Toni Leichtag through igniting and inspiring vibrant Jewish life, advancing self-sufficiency and stimulating social entrepreneurship in coastal North San Diego County and Jerusalem.

Sharyn Goodson, Leichtag’s Director of Philanthropic Strategy stated, “The Leichtag Foundation is proud to support and honor the model, multi-faceted programming that Interfaith Community Services provides to advance self-sufficiency in the region. With the grant announced, the Foundation has awarded nearly $3 million in funding to Interfaith over the past ten years. The Leichtag Foundation has great confidence in Interfaith’s staff and leadership , and is especially appreciative of the important role CEO Greg Anglea plays as one of our region’s top leaders.”
