Lake Monticello Community Foundation $500 donation to LMVFR
The new Lake Monticello Community Foundation launched its charitable activities with a $500 donation to Lake Monticello Fire & Rescue. The check was presented by Foundation President Nancy Parsons to Fire Chief Richard Constantino. “We have decided to make Fire and Rescue one of the Foundation’s priorities,” Parsons said. “What they do for the community is priceless, and they benefit every single person at Lake Monticello.” Constantino said such donations are especially important in this pandemic year when traditional fire and rescue fundraisers such as bingo and the golf tournament had to be put on hold. “I would estimate that we are facing more than $100,000 less income this year due to the coronavirus,” he said. “We have to make up that deficit, and donations like this are our lifeblood.” The Lake Monticello Community Foundation anticipates additional donations to other organizations over the coming months.
The recently established Lake Monticello Community Foundation's mission is to enhance the well-being of all Lake Monticello residents by providing leadership and resources through volunteerism and philanthropy for the current and future needs impacting the entire community.
The foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization (501c3) whose sole purpose is to support the Lake Monticello Community. As a 501 (c) 3 organization, all contributions to the Foundation are tax-deductible.
