Please let us know your ideas for how we can support Larkspur and Greenbrae. We would also love to hear your positive experiences in the community during these challenging times! We know people are helping neighbors, sewing masks for our medical community, ordering takeout to support local restaurants. What else is happening?  Tell us here. Send us pictures of your best day at home!

 

Questions:

Can LCF grant money to local businesses?

As a 501(c)3 LCF cannot donate directly to for profit businesses so we are supporting Larkspur in other ways. We have matched $10,000 to the Chamber of Commerce Small Business Emergency Fund and continue to look for ways to support the community.
