The Community Foundation of the Lake received a $1,000 grant during the annual Affiliate Appreciation Conference for the Community Foundation of the Ozarks.
The CFO selected ten affiliates from its 51-member affiliate network for $1,000 grants at the Nov. 12 virtual conference; two others received $5,000 grants. The recipients were drawn from affiliates that had completed annual activities and provided conference inspiration. Because pandemic protocols prevented the CFO’s in-person gathering this year, many affiliate leaders also participated in the National Conference for Growing Community Foundations, hosted online by the Kansas Association for Community Foundations in late October.
The CFL had a number of accomplishments during the CFO’s 2020 fiscal year. The foundation granted more than $80,000 through its “Four-Legged Friends” grants, the annual community grants and a special COVID-19 Emergency round. The CFL also raised more than $27,000 for grantmaking with the Shakespeare Under the Stars event in September 2019. Finally, the CFL hosted the 4th annual Great Smoke Detector Giveaway in October 2019, distributing more than $40,000 in smoke detectors to the community.
