We invite you to learn how our grants, scholarships and initiatives benefit you and your community.

What is a Community Foundation?


Legacy Foundation created our grants process to encourage, inspire, and improve lives in the community of Lake County.

Through innovative and effective grant making and stewardship, our goals are to encourage innovation, build a lasting foundation of support, and in turn make our world greater.



Legacy Foundation manages over 40 different scholarship funds.

The Foundation has a dedicated Scholarship Administrator whom you may contact with questions regarding scholarship programs.



We Love Our Community! Part of our mission is to engage community members in philanthropy and to foster leadership.

We serve as a convener of people, ideas and visions for positive change. Working together with local citizens and neighborhood partners, we have seen great projects come together.



Allow your legacy to live and impact generations far beyond your reach

Legacy Foundation considers attorneys, accountants, financial planners, insurance agents and other professionals who have relationships with members of the community to be our valued partners in charitable giving. We want to be a resource for you as well as a philanthropic partner for your clients.
