15 in, and 37 Out: A Beautiful Thing!


The Lakewood Community Foundation Fund (LCFF) recently announced grants for 2023 in the amount of $37,600. And yet….donations were only a little over $15,000 this past year. That, Lakewood, is the beauty of endowed funds. Thanks to 30 years of donations, the endowed fund is over $1.2 Million. This year and every year, money goes back to Lakewood regardless of current income. Your generosity over the years will keep on giving in perpetuity. As in, forever.
