The Foundation builds and maintains a pool of funds from many donors to provide a perpetual source of income to meet the charitable needs of our community.
The Greater Lake City Community Foundation was founded in 2012 with a seed grant from the J.A. Wedum Foundation. The GLCCF has focused the first years on raising money for an endowment. Our current funds are over $120,000! This is a tribute to the generous and supportive residents in our community.

When you give to the Greater Lake City Community Foundation, you are making an investment that will benefit the community, now and in the future.
The Greater Lake City Community Foundation is able to do its work because it is a Minnesota nonprofit corporation that is classified as tax exempt under 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue code and is funded through the charitable gifts given by people of the greater Lake City area. These monetary gifts grow to become the basis for charitable giving. The money earned in this permanent fund is given back to the community in the form of grants for specific areas of need.
