Since its inception in 2009, CFL has granted over $280,000 to local non-profit organizations. “With this year’s continued success we have exceeded the funds raised last year and will continue to reach toward our financial goal through the end of the year. These raised funds will again help us provide support to the many lake area charities this upcoming year,” current CFL President Amy Hernandez said.

All proceeds from Shakespeare Under the Stars goes to the Community Foundation’s Capacity Fund that is only used to fund charities in the Lake area. The grant process will open up late in 2019. Lake area charities may apply online for consideration of the 2020 funds.
