Transform Lake County Grant

Legacy Foundation’s donors support Transform Lake County grants through the Lake County Community Fund (LCCF). Transform Lake County Grants are intended to strengthen and empower nonprofits, neighborhoods and residents in Lake County.

In selected cases, projects undertaken by organizations that normally fall outside Legacy Foundation's guidelines may be able to receive funding. Examples include faith-based organizations whose proposal impacts the broader community, and units of government whose proposal extends beyond the traditional governmental functions that impact the broader community such as libraries or parks.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
