LCF Office Restoration Project
| In the News |
Some very exciting happenings at the Lexington Community Foundation as a considerable office renovation gets underway in August. The highly anticipated interior makeover includes complete modifications of the reception area, offices and meeting space. The projected completion date is by October 2019.
On Point Construction out of Kearney was awarded the bid in January. The start of the project was held until the fundraising portion of the project could be completed. The entire cost of the restoration project was raised with private donations and grants. Tom Fagot coordinated the fundraising effort.
During these renovations the Lexington Community Foundation will be operating from a temporary location. You will be able to find us at the Great Western Bank community room located at their drive through facility – 511 N Lincoln St. Our office hours and contact information will remain the same.
Funding for the restorations was raised entirely from donations and grants directed to the project. LCF received notification from the Peter Kiewit Foundation in June of a $40,000 grant award. In a statement provided to LCF the Peter Kiewit Foundation trustees give this statement of support. “Community foundations can have the unique ability to help turn a community’s dreams into reality. Lexington Community Foundation has done this time and time again for all those who call Lexington home. We are excited to support a project that results in a workspace that is aligned to the same caliber of work being done every day by the LCF team, all while keeping a downtown building occupied and active.”
We want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to complete the project. If you have any concerns please email Jackie Berke at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 308-324-6704.
LCF recognizes $10,000 donations to the office renovation project. When interviewed each of them valued support for the community and the Foundation.
