Teach and encourage philanthropy, promote community development, inspire leadership, and deliver meaningful long-term impact in Lewis County. Those are the goals of a group of area residents who have partnered together to create the Lewis County Community Foundation Fund. Our relationship with the PACF allows us to focus exclusively on developing resources for Lewis County's unique needs. We then gain administrative support and trusted investment services to help us achieve our goals.

The Lewis County Community Foundation Fund is a permanent endowment in which the principal remains intact and invested, forever, generating earnings to help support Lewis County needs. Annually, an advisory committee of Lewis County residents will award a portion of the Fund's earnings as grants to local organizations and causes.

Impactful Grantmaking

Three local organizations were recently awarded grants from the Lewis County Community Foundation. These grants were made possible thanks to generous donations to support the work of the Lewis County Community Foundation and with special help from a Benedum Foundation grant challenge, which is matching donor gifts.

Committed to Community

Advisory committee members serve without pay to help build a permanent civic endowment for Lewis County.
