We are proud to announce that the second Century Fund Grant for $100,000 has been awarded to Camp Kum-Ba-Yah! 

Camp Kum-Ba-Yah, located in the heart of Lynchburg, was founded by Reverend Bev Cosby in 1950 as a space for the children of the Lynchburg community to play together in a safe environment.

With a focus on connection and community through outdoor experiences, Camp Kum-Ba-Yah has greatly improved our Lynchburg community. The Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation looks forward to seeing how Camp Kum-Ba-Yah will continue to bring the community of Lynchburg closer together.

 

Dear Friends,

I hope this finds everyone enjoying the beginning of summer as we gradually move toward whatever we thought of before as normalcy.  It feels good to get to do many of the things we took for granted not so long ago.

 

The Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation has the privilege of helping support the activities of many local nonprofits. This month's Non-Profit Highlight is dedicated to Second Stage in Amherst, Virginia.

Dear Friends,

The GLCF is fast approaching its 50th anniversary of serving the community.  The foundation was formed as the Greater Lynchburg Community Trust in 1972 by four local banks and has grown beyond what I imagine could have been anticipated at that time, and I’m confident the founders would be pleased with where we are today.

It's Our Mission

The principal mission of The Community Foundation is to enhance the quality of life in the communities served by the establishment of permanent endowments for the cities of Lynchburg and Bedford and the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford and Campbell, with income distributed annually to charitable organizations within the community.
