Lyons Community Foundation Grant Applications Available Now
The Lyons Community Foundation (LCF) is pleased to announce our 14th Annual Community Support granting season. Applications for Community Support Grants are available to all local non-profit organizations. You can apply online starting August 1st. Submissions are due on September 11, 2021. These grants are available only once per year and must be applied for at this time. Electronic submissions are required; granting information and applications are available at lyonscf.org. Over the lifetime of the Community Support Grants program, LCF has awarded nearly half a million dollars in grant awards. This year, $35,000 will be made available to deserving recipients.
The LCF’s Community Support granting program focuses on our mission to improve the quality of life, build a culture of giving, and encourage positive change for the greater Lyons area. We connect people who care with the causes that matter. Eligible for grants are non-profit organizations in the greater Lyons area who have 501(c)3 status or a sponsoring organization with 501(c)3 status, government agencies, and schools.
In 2020, Community Support Grants totaled over $31,000 and were awarded to 14 individual projects including LEAF (Lyons Emergency Assistance Fund) and the Lyons food pantry, the Town of Lyons Parks and Recreation: Sandstone Concert Series and Parade of Lights, Lyons Arts and Humanities Commission, Lyons Elementary School, Lyons High School, local ecology groups and the Lyons Historical Society. None of this work would continue without the dedication, inspiration, hard work, and financial support of Lyons area citizens.
