Grant Making

The Foundation continues to support organizations that work
collaboratively to address the most basic needs of our residents.
The Foundation accepts proposals for both program/project
based initiatives and for general operating support. We believe
Lake County’s basic human needs can be met when everyone has
equitable access to:
 Affordable, nutritious food
 Affordable, comprehensive health care
 Safe and affordable housing
 Transportation
 Education and workforce opportunities
 Immigration and legal support services
The Foundation’s goal is to invest in work that allows people who are disproportionately affected by
lack of access to obtain support in several areas of extreme need through wrap around services, a
continuum of care, or close collaborations with other providers.
General operating grants will be prioritized for work that:
 Supports new and innovative approaches to meet basic human needs
 Addresses barriers to access of basic services and benefits for the most vulnerable
residents of Lake County
 Addresses otherwise unmet basic needs as the only service provider in the area
