The Lakewood Ranch Community Foundation (LWRCF) is financed fully by residents and businesses. One of the ways you can make a positive impact is by joining the Friends of the Foundation and becoming a monthly donor. A monthly donation, no matter the amount, can go a long way towards helping us continue to accomplish our mission. As an example, a donation of $100 a month ($1,200 a year) would allow us to grant money for a nonprofit in our community where they can feed several hundred families over nine months in rural Manatee County. Your donation is meaningful and sustaining. Being a Friend of the Foundation is an easy way to stay connected with your community and ensure the greatest impact from your donation. Let us “Open the Door.” Start now! Donate here.
