Our services for the people and businesses in our community and beyond.
For The Cities Of Litchfield and surrounding areas
Awards from the Litchfield Area Community Foundation help to improve infrastructure and beautify public areas. Grant dollars have also been used when our community has an emergency. SWIF and the Litchfield Area Community Foundation partnered to establish a tornado recovery fund in 2016 when Meeker County was hit with at least four tornadoes. Dollars were raised for the tornado victims in this area to help with the financial burden of recovering from the destruction of the storms.
The LACF has provided grant dollars to the LAMP Kinship program. The Litchfield Area Mentorship Program connects caring adults, or mentors, with the youth in our area.
LAMP-Kinship matches a child with a mentor through careful screening and also takes into consideration their hobbies and interests. LAMP also provide fun monthly activities, training for their mentors and directors, and the Lunch Buddies program. Lunch Buddies is a program where elementary aged students are matched up with an Adult mentor and meet with the student 1 time every other week at the school. The LACF has awarded grants to this program to aid in the continuation of such a vital program.
