Who We Have Helped

The goal of the Foundation is to increase the permanent endowment from its current $800,000 to $1 million in the next three years. Already earnings have enabled the Foundation to fund college scholarships and to make grants to local charities serving Lakewood’s greatest needs. The following grants have been made that directly serve Lakewood charities, children and families:
