LACF… Engaging Community, Inspiring People, and Improving Lives

Building a strong community – for ALL of us – is more important than ever. While some of us have greatly benefited from the Bay Area’s explosive growth and opportunities, others are barely getting by. We see many of our community-based nonprofits struggle to keep up with local needs and carry out their missions.

In spite of our region’s success, local giving hasn’t kept up with local needs. LACF sees vast opportunities to bring our community together, increase giving, and give hope to those who need it most.

Please give back to your local community – GIVE LOCAL through LACF!
