Arch Co-Founder Passes Away

Leslie Preston, co-founder of Arch Community Fund, passed away in February 2018 after a battle with cancer. She lived an amazing life and was determined during her final year to make sure Arch got off the ground. You can learn more about Leslie here. A celebration of her life was held in April 2018.

In addition to her career championing the mental health needs of low-income Californians, Leslie served on the board of directors of the Women’s Cancer Resource Center.

We are creating a grant program in her honor that will support activists suffering from cancer. We expect to release details on this in early 2019.
