Since 2003, The Lake County Community Foundation has connected the generosity of donors with community needs by making grants to organizations working to improve the lives of the most vulnerable residents of our county.

As nonprofit organizations, local governments and businesses strive to tackle issues of concern, the Foundation provides civic leadership bringing all stakeholders to a common table. Working together, the Foundation, its donors and its community partners leverage collective knowledge, creativity and resources for a greater impact than any of us can make alone.
