Membership Levels and Affiliate Groups

Endowed Life Membership

A special giving circle within LCHS is the Endowed Life Membership (ELM). These donors have recognized the critical need for the organization to sustain its current operations while providing for future financial sustainability.

Contributions received for the ELM program are placed directly into the LCHS Endowment Fund at the Community Foundation of Lorain County. A portion of this Fund is released for general operations every year for the life of the organization. As more donors become Endowed Life Members, and the Endowment Fund grows in value, the amount released to LCHS will become larger too. These special ELM donors are rooted in the history of LCHS!
