The Lifeline Endowment Against Poverty

In 2013, Lifeline’s Board and administrative staff recognized the need for long-term, sustainable funding—something that would carry Lifeline into its next 40 years and further. After much education and evaluation, the Lifeline Board announced its partnership with the Cleveland Foundation to launch the Lifeline Endowment Against Poverty in 2014.

“When establishing the endowment the Boards’ thoughts were to build a permanent philanthropic fund for Lifeline, which in turn would help support the needs of the portion of Lake County residents who need a hand up, not a handout, through the various programing that Lifeline offers,” said Pam Morse, Lifeline Board Past President.  “Our Board members’ additional thoughts were geared towards developing potential new programs not funded through the standard government funding stream and we believed that establishing an endowment would allow Lifeline realize that goal.”
