Lebanon Area Foundation Operating Fund is crucial in supporting the foundation’s organizational infrastructure and capacity to effectively manage campaigns, engage donors, and fulfill our mission.

Community Cares is Laclede County’s local giving program, supporting dozens of local nonprofits meeting the vital needs of Laclede County residents. Donations are turned into grants to support programs and services working to feed, clothe, shelter, provide disaster relief, transportation, literacy, and opportunities for the disabled.

The LAF Legacy Endowment was established to support brick and mortar type community projects that take many dollars to establish a program or building in Laclede County, Missouri. In lean years, the Legacy Endowment can be used to supplement the Community Cares grants. This is a permanent endowment that serves as an essential funding source for community needs without reducing the principal of the fund.

Pass Thru Funds:

Your membership fee and/or tax-deductible donation will help support their mission of bringing Laclede County history back to life as they educate generations to come in old trades, crafts, and amazing facts of our forefathers!
