The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette



Since 1970, area residents have been turning to The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette to make their philanthropic giving as effective as possible. The foundation is a public charity serving thousands of people who share a common concern -- improving the quality of life in the Greater Lafayette area.


Individuals, families, businesses, and organizations create permanent charitable funds that help the region meet the challenges of changing times. The foundation then uses the distributions to award grants each year to many of the humanitarian, educational, and cultural organizations.
