The Unity Foundation of LaPorte County serves as the fiscal sponsor for the LOK Wishing Tree Foundation. As a managed fund under their 501(c)3, they provide invaluable support in the way of administration, advisement for donors who wish to make legacy gifts and also provide additional funds through special grants and matching funds.
In 2017 we won our third Community Power for Good Grant from Unity. These additional funds support our carbon monoxide education and outreach in LaPorte County. We are aware of at least two LaPorte County families who credit CO alarms they picked up at local CO awareness events with saving their family's lives. This support also allowed us to focus efforts on helping LaPorte become the first city in all of Indiana to adopt a local CO ordinance requiring CO alarms for new construction residential buildings.
