With deep gratitude, LCCO announces the establishment of the Manly Walker Lucas Endowment for the Arts by the Lucas family to support the Lee County Community Orchestra Association with an annual grant.
Lucas was an original member of LCCO, serving as the heart of the cello section for more than 30 years. He arranged pieces for the orchestra as well. The endowment will be administered by the North Carolina Community Foundation.
The NCCF is the single statewide community foundation serving North Carolina and has made more than $184 million in grants since its inception in 1988. With more than $290 million in assets, NCCF sustains more than 1,200 endowments established to provide long-term support of a broad range of community needs, nonprofit organizations, institutions and scholarships.
Donations to the endowment can be made by visiting Manly Walker Lucas Endowment for the Arts.
