District & Club Community Impact Grant

District and clubs qualifying for the program will have the option to use earned funds to carry out local projects and access those funds through the submission of a District & Club Community Impact Grant application or use them as part of the local matching funds component of other LCIF grant program applications.

Criteria and Application

Matching Grant

Millions of people throughout the world lack access to items and services that many of us take for granted. Through matching grant projects, communities gain access to education, technology, health care, safe places for children to play and many other life-changing improvements. Matching grants involve identifying what a community needs most and making it a reality.

Criteria and Application
