(Lynchburg, VA - October 12, 2022) - The Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation (GLCF or Foundation) celebrates 50 years of service to the community. In 1971, an employee of Fidelity National Bank submitted an idea to form a Community Trust. This innovative idea arose at a time when there were not many community foundations in the nation, but it was well received. On October 12, 1972, the Board of Directors of Fidelity National Bank adopted a Resolution and Declaration of Trust creating the Greater Lynchburg Community Trust (now Foundation). Initial funding came from just three donors: The Plymale Foundation, A.H. Easley, and Nancy B. Pollack, and totaled $14,000. From those few visionary supporters, and under the able and dedicated guidance of those who followed, the Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation has grown exponentially.
