The Leota Braun Charitable Foundation, Inc. exists to provide financial support for projects and activities that will improve the quality of life for residents of the Ohio communities of Rockford, Willshire, and Mendon, as well as surrounding rural areas of the Parkway Local School District.

“Charity is a debt of honor”

– Immanuel Kant (1724-1804)


“It was great for me to be on being a young person in the community, I learned a lot about the workings of Parkway and had a lot of contact with individuals. I’d highly recommend to young people to find a community club or board to be a member of to support your local community and make connections!”

– Jordan Henkle, Past LBCF Treasurer
