Margot and Glenn Clark Unrestricted Endowment Fund

Margot and Glenn Clark established a fund that supports the grantmaking efforts of the Lake County Community Fund. “Change is a given in our world, and yet, the age-old challenges of hunger, poverty, injustice and inequality remain. Our Endowment fund will help fund new solutions to old problems both today and for generations to come.”
