The Rena Menard Leadership Fund
A Legacy of Leadership


Before her death in the summer of 2014, Rena Menard was not only the daughter of Ray Menard, Founder and CEO of Cheetah, but a leader in Cheetah Development’s mission of ending poverty among subsistence farmers. She was a leader whose compassion, energy, and deep commitment to our work advanced that mission immeasurably. 

In the spirit of continuing Rena’s legacy of leadership, Cheetah Development created the Rena Menard Leadership Fund to train and develop young leaders to work in Cheetah's African social enterprises. Contributions to the fund will help our staff and interns gain skills and experience that grow their capacity as leaders.

Please help us to continue what Rena started.
