Lewis County Community Foundation awards $11,817 in grants.

Four local organizations were the recipients of grant awards from the Lewis County Community Foundation (LCCF). The LCCF is a permanent endowment in which the principal remains intact and invested, forever, generating earnings to help support Lewis County needs today and forever. Annually, an advisory committee of Lewis County residents will award a portion of the Fund’s earnings as grants to local organizations and causes. The grant awards totaled $11,817.

  • Catholic Daughters of the Americas - $2,500 to purchase and distribute car seats to area families in need.
  • Lewis County First - $1,917 to assist with construction costs at the Little Brick Building.
  • Lewis County High School - $5,200 to help purchase a transportation vehicle for the marching band.
  • West Virginia Jazz Society - $2,200 to expand programming into the Lewis County community.

These grants were made possible thanks to generous donations to support the work of the Lewis County Community Foundation, support from the Larry D. and Margaret D. Brown Advised Fund of the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation (PACF), and with special help from a Benedum Foundation grant challenge, which is matching donor gifts.

Anyone who wishes to donate to the LCCF or get involved can do so by contacting Julie Posey at 304-428-4438. The Fund was established within the PACF, a nationally accredited, highly regarded, and widely supported public charity with more than 60 years of experience.
