The Longmont Community Foundation (LCF) is dedicated to improving the quality of life in Longmont and the St. Vrain Valley region. LCF manages Live & Give Longmont, the community endowment fund, in addition to more than 150 charitable funds for local donors, businesses, and nonprofits. Since its inception in 1994, the Foundation has  distributed more than $7M in grants to local nonprofits.

Live & Give Longmont is a permanent pool of money donated by many generous individuals, families, and businesses. Funding from this program is distributed every spring during our Grants Celebration Breakfast, where many of the Foundation’s donor-advised fund holders also elect to distribute a portion of their funds.
