Lakeside Wealth Management Supports 2016 Porter County Community Foundation Campaign

The Porter County Community Foundation was presented with a $50,000 check from Lakeside Wealth Management in support of the Foundation’s Tomorrow Starts Today campaign.

“The Porter County Community Foundation is a staple inside our community. The tireless work the Foundation puts into bringing our non-profit community together aligns directly with Lakeside’s core values,” said Tim Rice, Lakeside President. “We thank the Foundation for their services and hope to partner with them for years to come.”

The ambitious $6.5 million Tomorrow Starts Today campaign is raising funds to renovate a former medical center, located at 1401 Calumet, into the Center for Community Philanthropy, which includes a nonprofit conference center and permanent home for the Foundation.

“Lakeside has been a great supporter of ours over the years,” said Barb Young, Foundation President. “We are so appreciative of their investment in us and their involvement in the community. Lakeside’s gift to the campaign is another extension of their corporate commitment to Porter County’s nonprofit sector.” Over half of the Foundation’s new 12,000-square-foot Center will provide space for local nonprofit organizations to meet and attend education and training opportunities.

The Foundation’s campaign efforts will also create an endowment match for local nonprofits and grow the Foundation’s endowed funds to expand its annual grantmaking. To date, $5.7 million toward the $6.5 million goal has been raised.

The Porter County Community Foundation awards nearly $2 million in scholarships and grants to nonprofit organizations annually. The Foundation inspires giving and engages the community to improve lives in Porter County now and forever. For campaign updates or to make a gift online, visit portercountyfoundation.org.
