Get to Know: Tampa Bay’s Leap

LEAP is a collective impact initiative operating under “backbone” organization Community Foundation of Tampa Bay (CFTB). CFTB is a partner and fiscal agent, which adds and manages partnerships to move work forward.  Officially launched in May 2016, LEAP was originally funded by a grant from the Lumina Foundation aimed at expanding access and success in post-secondary education particularly among adults, low-income students, students of color, and first-generation college students. To achieve this, LEAP is establishing annual goals for increasing the number of prospective college students and implementing strategies to improve their opportunities to succeed.
