The Archbishop Iakovos Leadership 100 Fund was formed in 1984 to embody the vision of Archbishop Iakovos to draw 100 Greek Orthodox leaders into a philanthropic fellowship that would perpetuate the life-sustaining ministries of the Church for ages to come, while inspiring life-long friendships and bringing families together.

Today, Leadership 100, as it is popularly known, has grown to 1,200 members. With assets exceeding $100 million, it has distributed $70 million in grants and become a philanthropic force in the Church and the Nation, transforming institutions and lives.
