About Us

Paying it forward without leaving anyone behind.



Lifting As We Climb, Inc. (“LAWC”) was established as a corporation in North Carolina in July 2013. The IRS approved its non-profit status in November 2013.

Our founder and chair, Leo Bennett, envisioned a community in which organizations work collaboratively to expand the access to health and human services and educational opportunities to our youth.

Under his direction, our talented Board of Directors guide our overall strategy and ensure we are living our mission.  LAWC is committed to leadership that improves quality of life in ways that are nonjudgmental, neutral, diverse and inclusive.

Monetary proceeds and in-kind donations are collected and used to fund the mission, often times through special events.

We present opportunities that may not otherwise exist for those who have a desire to “pay it forward” with what they have, know, or have access to for the benefit of those who may be left behind.
