Lake County Community Fund

The Lake County Community Fund is supported through the generosity of a wide-base of donors.

Through this fund, Legacy Foundation supports organizations providing services to Lake County, Indiana families and individuals in the areas of arts and culture, education, environment and animal welfare, health and human services. The grants we make from LCCF support vital services in Lake County.
