What We Do
We provide grants to other local nonprofits, scholarships to local students, and facilitate collaboration between organizations to enhance the quality of life for all central Virginians. Our Youth Philanthropy program provides an opportunity for high school seniors to learn about the needs of the community and the role of philanthropy in our society. We also sponsor programs such as this Share Greater Lynchburg website platform and the Change for Change Caring Meters.
- Last year alone, GLCF provided grants to 175 local nonprofits and scholarships totaling just under $2 million.
- We awarded our first ever annual Century Fund grant of $100,000 to the Free Clinic of Central Virginia this past year.
- In our history, we have provided almost $30 million in grants to support local nonprofits.
