Watch for Lemonade Day Stands! (Locations Listed Below!)

May has arrived, which signals the advent of Lemonade Day, an entrepreneurship program for young people.

Lemonade Day – which is not just one day but actually spans the spring and summer months – is a national program that was brought to the region by Burton D. Morgan Foundation and University School's Young Entrepreneur Institute in 2011. Founded in Houston in 2007 by Prepared4Life, Lemonade Day is a free, annual community-wide event dedicated to teaching children how to start, own and operate their own business through the simple and time-honored act of running a lemonade stand. It provides an opportunity for families, businesses, faith-based community organizations and schools to come together for a common purpose – to train the next generation of entrepreneurs through a free, fun, engaging and experiential activity.

Lemonade Day Northeast Ohio currently serves more than 1,700 students, in collaboration with partner organizations. The program has grown each year through expanded partner relationships such as community development corporations, and in 2016, an additional 500 students are expected to participate. Lemonade Day contributes to the rich entrepreneurial ecosystem in Northeast Ohio by exposing young children to business concepts and creating a passion for entrepreneurship among our youngest citizens.

Burton D. Morgan Foundation is proud to support this initiative, along with the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation, The Veale Foundation, Hudson Community Foundation, KeyBank Foundation, Heinen's Fine Foods, and Kovach Design. If you are interested in learning more about Lemonade Day or becoming a community partner or sponsor, contact Jessie Jones at 216-831-2200, ext. 7456 or Also, check out the public registration information page at
