Loon Area Community Fund
The Loon Mountain Area Community Fund is dedicated to improving the quality of life in the communities surrounding Loon Mountain. The fund has been established to assist members of the community in need, as well as with financial assistance for education. Hardship may be caused by issues such as an accident or personal injury, medical issues and hospitalization, death in the family, fire or natural disaster. Our goal is to improve the lives of those in need who live, work and recreate in the Loon Mountain area.
The Loon Mountain Area Community Fund
The Fund grants monies at the discretion of the Fund’s Board of Directors, to individuals and families in our community who are deemed to be in need.
Who heads up the Fund?
The Fund is administered by a Board of Directors consisting of the following:
- Loon Mountain president/general manager or his designee
- Two employees of Loon Mountain, appointed by Loon Mountain management; and
- Two community members appointed by Loon Mountain management
Where do the Fund monies come from, and how are they allocated?
The Fund may conduct fundraising activities from time to time and also accepts tax-deductible contributions in the form of cash or check. Additionally, this newly-established fund encourages the employees of Loon Mountain to contribute on a volunteer basis through a payroll deduction program. The contributions made through the payroll deduction program will be matched by Loon Mountain.
It is our hope that local property owners, vendors, suppliers and friends will also find this Fund to be a good way and the means to help make a difference for members of the community who need help or assistance. We invite other local businesses and their staffs to also become involved in this vital community program. The funding guidelines dictate that all grants will be given to individuals and families deemed to be in need in the Loon Mountain area.
By encouraging all segments of the community to participate in the Fund, it is hoped that a broad base of interest in charitable activity will develop. The Fund can flourish through the coordinated efforts of people working together toward a common goal of improving the quality of life in our area. The Fund’s Board allocates monies based upon funds available and the requests it receives.
