Mike Manatos was recently appointed to the Board of Trustees of Leadership 100 (L100), and was featured on the cover of the organization’s magazine, The Leader.
Leadership 100 is an organization of over 825 of the Greek-American community’s most prominent individuals. Founded in 1984, Leadership 100 was created as an endowment fund of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America through which Greek Orthodox leaders were asked to commit themselves to offer $10,000 a year for a total of $100,000 each to maintain the life-sustaining ministries of the Church. Today, Leadership 100 is a separately incorporated endowment fund supporting the priority needs of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, but broadly dedicated to advancing the Orthodox faith and Hellenic ideals in America.
Leadership 100 disburses grants ranging from scholarship funds for individuals studying for the priesthood, building an information infrastructure and Internet ministries for the Archdiocese, promoting the National Ministries and providing assistance to emergencies such as September 11, Hurricane Katrina, earthquakes and medical needs.
The membership includes a broad spectrum of Greek Orthodox leaders, men and women of all ages from every field.
Leadership 100 is a driving force to seed and nurture new programs that advance Orthodoxy and Hellenism into the 21st Century.
