Community Foundation of the Lake will once again be granting thousands of dollars to local non-profit organizations through the generosity of Lake area business professionals and philanthropists. 

The Champagne Campaign, held in September at La Roca Club, featured honorary chairwoman Jane Martin and raised $19,000 to be distributed to lake area charities in 2019. The grant process for these funds will open in a few short months. 

“The Community Foundation of the Lake is overwhelmed by the community support,” CFL President Amanda Fagan said. “We are humbled by the trust donors have in the CFL board to make the right decisions in granting funds where they can be the most helpful to the local community.”

Since its inception, the Champagne Campaign has funded more than $200,000 in grants to Wonderland Camp, the Camdenton School Foundation, the Children’s Learning Center, Citizens Against Domestic Violence, Kids' Harbor, Medical Missions for Christ, Share the Harvest Food Pantry, Lamb House, Buddy Packs, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Westlake Aquatic Center, Lake Arts Council Children's Theater, the School of the Osage School Art Department, lake area senior centers, and more.

All proceeds from CFL’s Campaign, stay local and are distributed as grants to non-profit organizations at the Lake of the Ozarks. 

Donations can be given in any amount at any time, to benefit community needs identified by the CFL Board of Directors or directed by donors for a specific program or purpose.
