The Lennox Area Community Fund began in 2004. Since that time, the endowment fund has been able to award grants to numerous organizations in the communities of Lennox, Chancellor and Worthing.
Current LACF President Kelly Wulf was recently elected to her third term as president. Wulf said, “We are an endowment fund that solely relies on donations to grow. We are currently doing a fundraiser in the month of November. We will receive a match for up to $5000 from the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation, who manages the fund.
