The mission of Midlands Community Foundation is to benefit the diverse needs of the Sarpy and Cass county communities by providing financial support, involvement and service.

Throughout the year, the Lofte receives generous grants from Midlands that often help pay for expensive repairs and maintenance. Also, every December, Midlands offers the Lofte an opportunity to have all donations matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000 per individual through the Midlands Community Foundation Matching Charitable Program. During this time, the Lofte receives the majority of all its donations for the year! We thank the MCF for this yearly opportunity and hope our patrons and donors take advantage of this wonderful program!
