We Give Thanks

Since 2008, the LaGrange County Community Foundation has offered a dollar-for-dollar matching campaign to support local food pantries.

The Community Foundation is again challenging the community this holiday season in a special campaign to help feed hungry families through local efforts.

The 2017 “We Give Thanks” Community Challenge will offer a dollar-for-dollar match for every dollar raised locally up to $5,000. The goal is to raise a total of $10,000 to support volunteer food pantries in LaGrange County. We offer this challenge because we believe in the hope that is inspired by the joy of the season!

The campaign will run through Dec. 31, 2017. Donation checks should be made payable to the LaGrange County Community Foundation with “We Give Thanks” on the memo line. Cash donations for this purpose should be accompanied with donor contact information and written instructions directing the gift to “We Give Thanks.”

Donations also can be made online at lccf.net/donateform with instructions directing the gift to “We Give Thanks.” The volunteer food pantries will receive the local contributions and our matching grant in January 2018.
