Warmest holiday greetings from all of us at the Community Foundation of Lorain County.
Thanks to the dynamic support you and others provided, the Community Foundation of Lorain County awarded $6M (Six Million Dollars!) in grants and scholarships to those most in need in our community in 2018.
Thanks to you, the Foundation is forging a bold strategic plan, leveraging our collective insights and built upon the thoughtful work of previous board, staff, and community leaders.
Thanks to you, our affiliate funds are working together to make an even more robust impact. Our African American Community Fund, Hispanic Fund, Youth Fund and Women’s Fund came together around an enormously successful Leadercast event in November, bringing together over 200 energized county participants. We are following up that success with a December job creation, job preparation, and job access event in partnership with Lorain County Community College and local nonprofit agencies.
And thanks to you, in 2019, we will continue to listen and learn from our county wide partners in a collaborative process. We welcome the opportunity to meet with you, to hear from you what priorities you feel are most significant for our community. Please call or stop by and let us know how best to follow up with you.
Your year end consideration will continue to make Lorain County a great place to live, to work, to learn, and to call home. Best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season!
