The Lake Region Community Fund (LRCF) is a volunteer-driven organization whose purpose is to identify Lake Region community needs, develop a plan to address those needs, and bring together resources necessary to do so.

Planning, fundraising and community investing are guided by a volunteer board, which controls organization governance and policy making.
All of the funds raised stay right here in our community. Approximately 95 percent of the funds are allocated to local non-profit agencies that provide a full range of health and human care services, which meet the needs and concerns of all ages and economic groups, regardless of race or religion.

The remaining funds are used to cover campaign expenses and administrative costs.
Giving is voluntary. The Lake Region Community Fund does not support any type of forced giving. Whether to give and how much to give is up to each individual.

There are two ways to contribute to the Lake Region Community Fund.
The first way is through cash or check.
The second way is through payroll deduction. Since the pledge is dedicated over a 12-month period, it is less strain on the budget. Simply complete an Employee Pledge Card and indicate the amount requested to have deducted from each pay period.
