A total of $15,362 was awarded to the organizations.

The LACF is a charitable endowment working to strengthen the vibrancy of the Lennox, Chancellor and Worthing communities. Thanks to the support of generous donors and through the power of endorsement, the LACF has awarded hundreds of meaningful grants to nonprofits and causes throughout the Lennox, Chancellor and Worthing areas since 2004.

Every gift, large or small, helps to increase the fund balance and allows the LACF to continue to give grants to local organizations like the Lennox Historical Society.

Grant applications are due every year at the beginning of August.
