“Lorain County non-profits serve some of our most vulnerable neighbors as our community continues to navigate the COVID-19 crisis and all the challenges that has come with it,” shares Cynthia H. Andrews, President, and CEO of the Community Foundation. “We asked our community to give generously last year, and they answered the call. I have no doubt that this year, with 65 participating organizations, there is a cause that matters to every person in our community, that we will meet our goal.”

New to this year’s event are the Connect to a Cause Business Champions. These 20+ businesses have partnered with the Community Foundation’s Board of Directors to provide a $42K prorated match for all 65 participating non-profits.
