She created a generous endowment in support of health and wellness programs on the UNCG campus. UNCG’s Leonard J. Kaplan Center for Wellness, which opens Aug. 1, was named in her husband’s honor.

The Kaplans made an indelible mark on the community through their extraordinary record of philanthropy and leadership. Together they established the Kaplan Family Foundation (later renamed the Toleo Foundation). The foundation has been active in furthering the causes of education, health, social services and community improvement. The Kaplans led the effort to establish the Moses Cone cardiac unit, were instrumental in building a new home for the Women’s Resource Center and have been tireless supporters of Greensboro Urban Ministry, the United Way and Habitat for Humanity.
