Lakewood Needs a Community Foundation

“Lakewood is a barbell community: on one end, two country clubs, several lakes and successful residents; and on the other end, serious poverty. The rich and the poor. We who have been blessed by success in Lakewood need to give back to Lakewood.”

— Dave Betz, President, Lakewood Community Foundation Fund

The Lakewood Community Foundation Fund was formed to provide a permanently funded endowment to improve the quality of life in Lakewood. The Foundation helps donors accomplish their philanthropic goals for Lakewood. 

The needs in Lakewood are great.


Mission Statement: To provide funding to benefit the Greater Lakewood Community through a permanent endowment.
