Your charitable gift and others in our community can create a positive impact, regardless of size. Your generosity makes a meaningful difference to the causes you care about.
You can make general contributions to our Touch the Future Fund at the Community Foundation of Lorain County, allowing us to allocate flexible and unrestricted dollars towards immediate needs while creating a lasting impact that adapts to the changing community.
We have over 700 funds, including Agency, Field of Interest, Designated, Donor-Advised, School District, and Scholarship funds, all part of the Community Foundation of Lorain County. The Community Foundation will share your donation details with the Fund Holder contacts, which may include the Fund creators or the non-profit beneficiaries unless you want to remain anonymous.
