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.
