Organized in 2012, the Lake Area Foundation is a community foundation that serves as "resource central" for ideas, information and inspiration to help make a difference in communities located within in the Lake Cumberland region, which include the counties of Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, McCreary, Pulaski, Russell, Taylor and Wayne.

The foundation continues in its mission to develop a permanent, yet flexible, collection of endowment funds contributed by people from all walks of life who want to give something back in a way that matters to them. The principal of these funds remains intact forever; with the income generated annually invested back into the community through grants that tackle today’s needs and prepare for tomorrow’s challenges.
