LACF MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Lakeview Area Community Fund is to enhance the quality of life in the Lakeview area by providing community focused grants.

In the spring of 2001, interested Lakeview citizens discussed the concept of having a community fund that would provide a future-funding base to enhance the quality of life in the Lakeview area. The group learned this could easily be done by affiliating with the Greenville Area Community Foundation. The GACF would be responsible for administrative tasks for a small fund fee and the Lakeview group could concentrate on raising money and making the area aware of this new opportunity to give back to the community. With volunteers agreeing to become the first Advisory Committee – The Lakeview Area Community Fund (LACF) was on its way!
