Thank You, Spark Supporters




These individuals, funds, and organizations were inspired by our 50th anniversary celebration to give to either LVCF, a specific Spark issue, or a specific Spark grantee.  We are thankful for their contributions, and without them this celebration would not have been a success...  See the Thank You, Lehigh Valley video.
