Grant helps community foundation advance its mission

Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) recently awarded $10,000 to Legacy Foundation to support the nonprofit organization’s operations.

The grant will enhance the capacity of Legacy Foundation, Lake County’s community foundation, to identify opportunities to improve the quality of life for local residents.

“NIPSCO’s generous support will help us continue our work to benefit the people of Lake County,” said Nancy Johnson, president of Legacy Foundation. “Especially as the economy continues to challenge local families and local charities, Legacy Foundation aims to partner with agencies that provide needed assistance. The support of strong corporate leaders such as NIPSCO enables us to move forward in these efforts.”

This summer, Legacy Foundation awarded grants to local organizations that will provide food, shelter, transportation and improved educational opportunities to people of all ages throughout Lake County.
