Our Community Foundation is pleased to announce the dates that nonprofits are invited to apply to our Local Community Funds (LCFs).  These funds provide competitive grant funding to specific geographic communities in our region. In 2018, our LCFs distributed nearly $80,000 in the five communities they serve. This year, these local funds will be distributing almost $100,000 in grants.
