Lazare and Charlotte Kaplan Foundation

COMMUNITY FUND

Grants starting at $250 will be considered (with larger grants awarded based on need and merit) for Livingston Manor and Town of Rockland, NY organizations whose project/program fit within our mission statement:

“To get the kids off the streets of Livingston Manor” – and to the extent that we have funds available from earnings and capital gains, as designated by the Board of Directors, to meet the needs of Livingston Manor first, and then if resources are available, to extend the same to our neighboring communities. This means providing funds for education to individuals in the arts and sciences and especially in the trades. It also means supporting programs like afterschool activities, educational support, competitions, recreational facilities, etc. We should fund projects that are supplemental, and not within the realm of responsibilities of the schools or other governmental agencies. With our limited resources, we must restrict ourselves to assistance which is vital to the individual or activity
concerned: that is, without our help, it would not take place.
