Building Endorsements - Light the Spark

The Lodi Community Foundation (LCF) is committed to encourage and increase philanthropy in the Lodi area. One way to encourage the growth of philanthropy is to assist local non-profit organization to develop endowment programs. It is the foundation’s belief that such endowment programs, when consistently marketed to the constituents of non-profit organizations, can grow in size and ultimately provide an organization with a predictable revenue stream.

The LCF intends to award two matching grants to local non-profit organizations to develop and start their own endowment programs. Again, the LCF awards are designed to foster the start of new endowment funds, not necessarily endowment funds already in existence.
