The Lima Community Foundation

“Connecting donors who care with causes that matter.”

Text Box: Our 49th year had many noteworthy accomplishments:

During this past fiscal year (July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014) nine new charitable funds were established, with a number of additions still in process.


· Bittersweet Autism Foundation Fund

· Marilyn J. Collmer Advised Fund

· Mabel V. Dillman Memorial Scholarship Fund

· Heartbeat of Lima Neighborhood Association Fund

· Lima Allen County Neighborhood Association Fund

· Lima High Speed Rail Project Fund

· MSC Southside Memorial Scholarship Fund

· Warrior Mode Project Fund

· Weisembarger Fund


During this fiscal period $181,748.19 was granted through our various charitable accounts to support both non-profit organizations and community projects.


 48 college-bound students applied for and received 85 scholarships amounting to $50,015 in financial support.


During 2013 we continued to work with a number of non-profits in the region to make the Celebration of Community Giving an annual event by having the third Philanthropy Day Luncheon on October 18th.  The non-profit community recognized Martha Farmer (posthumously) as the 2013 recipient of the John W. MacDonell Volunteer of the Year Award.


Perhaps one of the most significant accomplishments during this period of time has been the creation of a promotional video.  This video was released on YouTube in May of 2012.


           With your encouragement you have made it possible for our organization to achieve these and a number of            other important milestones during this past fiscal year.


We THANK YOU for your support of The Lima Community Foundation.
