Area-of-Interest Funds

Lehigh Valley Community Foundation

Choosing a Cause

An area-of-interest fund supports programs & initiatives that tackle issues of your choosing, such as the environment, camperships, or no-kill animal shelters. The Community Foundation leverages donors’ resources with other like-minded people who care to have a greater impact than any one of us could make alone. From personalized foundations, unique asset gifts and legacy planning, we manage a diverse portfolio of charitable giving solutions.

Foundation-directed area-of-interest fund awards grants based on LVCF’s own community research to identify worthy charitable programs in the specified area-of-interest.

Donor-directed area-of-interest fund awards grants based on the recommendations of a community committee that oversees a specific initiative.
