Igniting Change Fund
The Lehigh Valley Community Foundation celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2017 by doing what it does best: grantmaking. The theme of the special anniversary year was Be the Spark! Be a spark of awareness, a spark of connection, and a spark of change.
The 2018-19 Igniting Change Fund will provide a NEW series of Community Foundation grants to harness the momentum of the Be the Spark! campaign and provide additional resources to expand on the important work we began during the 2017-2018 campaign. Grant awards will be in the range of $5,000 to $10,000. The Igniting Change Fund grants will support high priority needs within the following six areas:
- Mental & Behavioral Health
- Cultural Enrichment
- Food & Housing Access
- Environment & Sustainability
- Human Trafficking
- Veterans Affairs
More information about the funding areas will be released in June, based off the findings of the Lötter Fellow Reflections Paper, led by Dr. Christopher Borick of Muhlenberg College’s Institute of Public Opinion. Please check back in June for additional details. The Igniting Change Fund will be open to grant applications from Lehigh Valley nonprofits in September.
