About McKenzie Promising Futures Fund:

Last year Sure Sports Lending started McKenzie Promising Futures Fund.  The fund was inspired by Leon McKenzie, President of SSL.  Leon is very passionate about Lansdowne Friends School, which he attended as a grade school student.  As SSL grew, Leon wanted to give back and what better way than giving scholarships to children who otherwise may not be able to attend LFS?  Last year, McKenzie Promising Futures Fund raised just under $10,000 and this year we want to triple that amount! 


About Lansdowne Friends School (LFS):

Lansdowne Friends School is located in Lansdowne, PA in the West Philadelphia area.  It offers a unique learning atmosphere as an alternative to the congested Philadelphia public school system. Their focus is on growth in academic skills; cultivation of an inner discipline and a strong sense of self; enjoyment of learning; development of compassion and care for others.  Yearly tuition for the full day program ranges from $12,600 to $14,800 and the estimated median family income in Lansdowne is $35,386. Through various financial aid programs and much family sacrifice, Leon McKenzie attended LFS from '77-82.  He credits the school for shaping his continued learning experiences through their philosophies of faith in the integrity of each child, respect for the individual and the community. As a result, he created McKenzie Promising Futures Fund to help families, financially, to provide their kids with this invaluable opportunity.
