East Lake Foundation Gives Thanks

Thank you for all you do for the East Lake Foundation! We are so grateful to have a strong community of support made up of people who share our belief that we can transform our neighborhood.

Our model of neighborhood revitalization works and has now been implemented all throughout the country.

Since 1995, we have:

  • Reduced the violent crime rate by 99%
  • Increased the high school graduation rate from less than 30% to 98%
  • Improved the employment rate from 13.5% to having 100% of all eligible adults working or in job training

None of this would have been possible without you.

But our work isn’t done. And, to meet our year-end goals, we need your help.

Every year, the next generation of students walks through the halls of Charles R. Drew Charter School; new families move into homes in The Villages of East Lake; and new young golfers step on the Charlie Yates Golf Course, the course with The First Tee® of Metro Atlanta.

With your help, we will be here for them.

Are you willing to help make that possible with a year-end donation to the East Lake Foundation? Any amount will make a big difference in the lives of students and families in our neighborhood.

Thank you for your continued support of East Lake.
