Mission & Guidelines

The mission of the Lafayette Life Foundation ("Foundation") will be to principally fund charitable programs in the greater Lafayette, Indiana area.

Local Community

The Foundation generally limits its grant making to organizations within its local community. The Foundation generally defines "its local community" as the greater Lafayette, Indiana area. However, on rare occasion, the Foundation may expand the geographic scope of its grant making based upon the particular merits of an organization or program.

Calendar Year

Normally, we grant one request to an organization during any calendar year. This includes any outstanding pledges until the pledge has been paid.

Tax Requirements

The Foundation will only make a grant to an organization that is recognized as exempt from federal taxation pursuant to Sections 501(a) and 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), and a public charity as described in Code Section 509(a).
