Announcement about Licking County Foundation Grant Programs

The last 18 months have been a remarkable period of listening and learning for Licking County Foundation (LCF).  As a result of this intentional and frequent engagement with our nonprofit community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we gained new insights into how organizations of many shapes and sizes are responding to broad and complex needs across many different communities in Licking County. 

Informed by convened group conversations, data supplied by charitable organizations, and regular engagement with our grant partners, LCF has shifted to a strategic funding approach in 2021, to direct our resources to effective support of organizations nonprofit community effectively and with the greatest possible impact for all residents of Licking County.  

In collaboration with our Governing Committee and Grant Review Committee, LCF plans to continue this strategic funding approach in 2022. Updated information will be shared through this webpage throughout the summer.

LCF is always interested in learning about emerging community needs and opportunities. Organizations are encouraged to share information about Licking County communities or initiatives by writing us at

As always, please do not hesitate to contact our Program staff with questions.
