COVID-19: Donate to State and Local Response Funds

A Lasting Impact on the Community: Lovelesses Donate to Grow GCCF Endowment

Ken and Jondy Loveless, longtime residents and supporters of Chapin, have a heart for serving their local community. Recently, they made a commitment that will help Chapin for generations to come when they designated Greater Chapin Community Foundation (GCCF) as the beneficiary of $100,000 in their estate plans.

The Lovelesses contribute countless hours of volunteer service to the Chapin community through their extensive involvement on multiple boards. They have both served as trustees on the board of School District Five of Lexington & Richland Counties, and Mr. Loveless served on the GCCF board for six years.

Mr. Loveless said, “We were doing some estate planning and wanted to choose five local organizations to support.” Number one on that list was Greater Chapin Community Foundation.

The Lovelesses hope their gift will inspire others to give to GCCF. “Supporting Greater Chapin Community Foundation means supporting more Chapin organizations because it allows the Community Foundation to provide more grants,” said Mr. Loveless.

Greater Chapin Community Foundation’s goal is to grow philanthropy in the Greater Chapin area by building a permanently endowed fund to address community needs now and into the future. Since 2003, GCCF has awarded over $173,000 to Greater Chapin nonprofit organizations.
