Life with military pride and cultural connections


Lexington has a way of holding on to people. The population of the Dawson County community eclipsed the 10,000 mark in recent decades thanks to available jobs and an influx of workers from around the world.

“Our diversity makes us strong,” Fagot said. ’’I’d say 95 percent of what everyone wants is the same. The key is to focus on the similarities. Then it’s easier to make the differences go away.”

Foundation 2016 Event Sponsorship

The Lexington Community Foundation Board (LCF) appreciates your support of the Foundation and its activities throughout the years. We recognize that our success in being able to raise money through our annual events – The Key (dinner and auction) and Give Big Lexington (day of giving) – is directly related to the support you provide us.

Over $13.9 million has been distributed back into Lexington and the Johnson Lake area by the Foundation since 1996. Dozens of projects, both large and small, and thousands of people have benefitted. The Foundation firmly believes that communities should feel great about being generous together. Lexington accomplishes that!

In 2013, the LCF Board of Directors began building the capacity of our events by accepting LCF Event Sponsorships. The Foundation feels that by obtaining annual event sponsors, we have helped maximize the impact your donor dollars have in this community.

We are inviting you to partner with the Lexington Community Foundation in support of our 2016 community events. By becoming an LCF Events Sponsor, you will be given recognition for the full year through the LCF Forum (newsletter), the LCF website and media sources.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: IRA Charitable Rollovers

On December 18, the President signed the “Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015” into law. This law includes a permanent extension of the IRA Charitable Rollover. As in years past, the IRA Charitable Rollover allows individuals 70 ½ and older to donate up to $100,000 in IRA assets to a qualified charitable organization. The Charitable IRA Rollover is tax-free and not included in a donor’s adjusted gross income. Download the IRA Charitable Rollover Fact Sheet
