We Support Our Communities

Here at Business Leasing Associates, Inc., we believe in work / life balance. We each work hard when we're in the office, and we make sure to enjoy our lives outside of the office (though those two often overlap and interconnect). In addition, we believe in the importance of charitable contributions, whether through financial donations or through volunteering our time. Here are a few of the organizations we support.

The YouthQuest Foundation

Lynda Mann, a member of the BLA family, is the co-founder of this organization, which "supports the academic, vocational, and life-enriching development of America’s youth, particularly at-risk youth."

Charlie is a supporter and annually donates a sailing trip on his boat for the silent auction. John Gilstrap (another member of our family) is also a supporter and autographs copies of his books at events.

Business Leasing Associates, Inc. supports the foundation's Youth Mentor Program's 3D ThinkLink Initiative. This program encourages creativity, decision making, and problem solving to turn an idea on paper into a 3D-printed object. The students learn patience, the thrill of success, and many other important life lessons as part of this initiative.

Please consider joining us in supporting the 3D ThinkLink Initiative. A $500 donation buys a Tech Pack (pictured at right), which helps provide youth with the tools and skills needed to serve as Youth Mentors.

To donate, please download the attached form and send in with your check to the address at the bottom of the form. As a small token of appreciation, the teens will create a 3D printed keychain for you.
