Changing the Lives of Young Ladies,
Exponentially, One Day at a Time

The LadyLike Foundation is a faith based non-profit organization whose purpose is to educate, empower and inspire young women living in underprivileged communities.

Through cutting edge resource programs, workshops, mentorships and life lessons, young ladies are challenged to reach their highest potential and become the successful, well-rounded “Lady” they were created to be.

Meet the President and Founder

Leah Cher Pump is the president and CEO of the LadyLike Foundation. Her vision for starting this company began in 2004 when her pastor, Dr. R.A. Williams Jr., appointed her as the director of the Youth and Young Adult Ministry at the McCoy Memorial Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California. As the Youth and Young Adult director, Leah implemented many successful programs, one of which was the “LadyLike” class. At her church, “LadyLike” was designed to teach young women through the word of God, how to be virtuous and well rounded.



What We Do

How we empower and inspire young women to reach their potential.


The LadyLike Foundation holds many events throughout the year. Events include; LadyLike Day at UCLA, Neiman Marcus Lunch and Shop Day, Lady Like Annual Mother and Daughter Tea Party, Life and Style Workshops, and Girl Talk meetings. All girls ages are invited to join in on our events. If the event is for a certain age group the invite will specify which age group is appropriate to attend.


We have so much fun during our workshops & classes. We’ve have cooking classes, etiquette classes, tea parties, college application workshops, academic workshops, life skill lessons, and our famous “Girl Talk” sessions where we talk about real issues, ask real questions, and get real answers.

College Scholarships

Each year the LadyLike Foundation awards 5 young ladies with scholarships ranging from $1000.00 to $2,500.00. These young ladies go through an application process where they have to complete an essay, turn in 3 letters of recommendation, present their resume, and transcripts. The young ladies must also have a 3.5 GPA and show proof of the college they are attending in the fall.

in Africa

The LadyLike Foundation supports orphans in the Obosomso Orphanage in Obuasi, Ghana by giving them clothes, and hygiene products. The LadyLike Foundation also partnered with the McCoy Memorial Baptist Church to build a bathroom and shower house on the orphanage grounds for the children. This is the first wash house to ever be built in their village.

Ladies Corner

In our online Ladies Corner, we post educational & fun articles on varying topics such as etiquette, health & fitness, recipes, fashion & spirituality.

Women of Excellence Luncheon

Annually, the LadyLike Foundation hosts a fundraiser that honors women in the community and in our world who are “Excellent” in their fields of occupation and philanthropy.

Past honorees of the Woman of Excellence Awards are: Mrs. Cookie Johnson (Fashion Designer, Aids Activist, and Philanthropist), Dr. Verna B. Dautrieve (Celebrated Educator), Wendy Raquel Robinson (Actress and Philanthropist), Shaun Robinson (TV Personality for Access Hollywood), Nikki Caldwell (Head Women’s basketball of LSU), Dr. Pam Wiley Wells (President and CEO of Los Angeles Speech and Therapy Center), Mrs. Debbie Allen (Renown Choreographer and Actress), Mrs. Jami Morse Heidegger (Former owner and founder of Kiehls Skin Care Products, Philanthropist,  and currently president of Retrouve skin care), and Mrs. Holly Robinson Peete (Actress and Autism Activist). Holly is also the Mistress of Ceremonies for this event every year.

In addition to honoring Women of Excellence, at this event we also give 5 college scholarships to deserving young ladies with a 3.5 GPA or higher. Students who have been awarded this scholarship have gone to universities such as Harvard, UCLA, and UC Berkeley. We are very proud of all of our award and scholarship recipients.

The LadyLike Class

“The LadyLike Class” : Leah Pump created a curriculum for the LadyLike Foundation. The curriculum is taught twice a week at Lou Dantzler Middle School. In this class 50 young ladies are taught the Fundamentals of being LadyLike:

L – Love, A true lady must love God, herself, and others. This is the one thing that separates her from the crowd, her love. Her love is unselfish and she knows that the way she gives it is how she will receive it.

A – Always Appropriate. A lady knows how to be appropriate at any place, at any time. She knows how to eat, how to speak, how to sit, how to stand, what to say and what not to say, she knows what to wear, and she knows how to behave. A lady is never intimidated by her environment, she knows exactly what to do and adapts to any circumstance.

D – Destined for Greatness. A lady is always goal oriented. She is always striving for greatness despite whatever challenges come her way.

Y – Yearn to Learn. A lady never stops learning and experiencing new things.


L -



A - Always Appropriate.



D - Destined for Greatness


Y - Yearn to Learn.
