LCF is thrilled to be a part of this event again! Our 2018 Giving Challenge supporters were amazing. Nearly 200 donors generously surpassed our goal of $7,000 with over $12,200 raised by individual online gifts. With the outstanding match of $11,431 from The Patterson Foundation, we were incredibly grateful to all for making it our most successful Giving Challenge. This year, we’ve raised the bar to $15,000 for endangered lemurs. Today, bookmark LCF’s Giving Challenge profile for April 28-29, noon to noon.
With 95% of over 100 lemur species threatened with extinction, we need to work together more urgently than ever.
Please give generously April 28-29, noon to noon

With the wonderful 2020 Giving Challenge outreach by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, your incredible support, and the generous 1:1 match by The Patterson Foundation, together we can make a world of difference for these animals and our planet with programs in Florida, throughout the U.S. and half a world away in the rainforests and communities of northeastern Madagascar.
Be The One

- Each and every person can be the one to make a difference during the Giving Challenge.
- Everyone, no matter the size of their gift, can be a philanthropist.

For the Lemur Conservation Foundation, the theme also means:
