President's Message

Thanks to the incredible generosity of donors to The Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation since its inception in 1972, we have been able to fulfil our mission to enhance the lives of central Virginians in a multitude of ways. Whether through grants to non-profit organizations, endowment funds, or scholarship funds, The Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation has successfully served the city of Lynchburg and the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, and Campbell for over 50 years. In our last fiscal year alone, GLCF provided over $2.2 million in support for those in need, as well as funding for the arts, education, and historic preservation.

This is only possible through the dedication of our Board of Directors, the banks and investment advisors who work diligently with us, those volunteering their time on our distribution and other committees, and the countless citizens working in and through the many agencies with which we partner. We thank them for their dedication and selflessness. Most importantly, we live in a community that is committed to helping those in need. All of these pieces help to make our region of Virginia a wonderful place to live, and we are grateful to serve as a vehicle for bringing these components together.

The establishment of a named fund, or a gift to one of our over 320 existing funds, is a wonderful way to not only help now but to continue to benefit future generations.

Thank you for your generosity. We look forward to serving the community for years to come.

Kathryn C. Yarzebinski 
President & CEO
