Impact

LCF has developed community leadership and engagement through capacity building, leadership development and investment in community projects. It has provided training and issue education to more than 1,000 community members and youth. 

Last year, LCF increased civic participation through contact with direct phone calls to more than 8,000 residents, and reached many more thousand in Eastern Washington through radio. It successfully advocated for the largest allocation to farmworker housing of $27 million, and for inclusive admission policies for talented undocumented students to attend UW School of Medicine.

LCF has invested over $280,000 in community grants, awards, scholarships, and sponsorships to promote and improve education, economic empowerment, arts and culture, civic engagement, health, environmental and climate justice.
