Programs & Impact

 

With the generous support of our donors, the LACF is able to provide grants that give  back to  our communities and to the organizations and programs that matter most to you.
 

Since its inception in June of 2004 the LACF has donated $90,457 back to the communities of Chancellor, Worthing, and Lennox without touching any of the principal! 

 

This is truly a fund for our communities, Forever!


We work hand-in-hand with nonprofit leaders, community organizers, government officials, and residents to pursue all opportunities for improving lives and strengthening neighborhoods.
