The LCF Advisory Board members would like to thank you for your support these last two years as we navigated the COVID-19 pandemic together. As the mask mandate has been lifted and more and more people venture out, we are thrilled to be able to connect with you at a variety of community events.
LCF was very thankful for the 1st Annual Hootenanny Fundraiser last summer. Between this joint fundraiser with LEAF, our year-end appeal and our monthly donors, LCF was pleased to grant $37,000 in Community Support Grants and $7,500 in Scholarships.
LCF is very thankful for all of our monthly donors. We know that we could not build this community without YOU! We call our monthly donors "Community Builders", because building a better community is at the very heart of our mission.
For just $1/day or $30/month, you can help local projects get off the ground and send high school students to college. At LCF, we like to think that our monthly donors plant seeds that bloom all year long. Seeds like human services, community connectivity, youth investment and local ecology help grow our community into a bountiful garden of beautiful wildflowers.
Former LCF Board Chair, Monica McGuckin explains why she thinks it is important to donate monthly.
