Because of the generosity of many donors, The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette invests in Tippecanoe County nonprofit organizations that are tax-exempt under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Service Code and who have a clear mission, effective operations, proven successes, strong staff and board leadership, responsible accounting and fiscal management, and sustainability.

The Foundation likes to help organizations that collaborate with others, promote a thriving community, and respond to the needs of people in the neighborhoods and areas served.
