LTlov supports neighbors helping neighbors to overcome limiting circumstances.
LTlov works to address the significant divide in the Lake Travis area between the affluent and the working poor. By bringing greater awareness through charitable events, collection drives, and social media, LTlov provides the opportunity for philanthropy within the greater community. LTlov bridges this gap through programs that support basic needs, education, wellness, and enrichment through active community outreach in the form of scholarships, dental care, learning readiness, grants to local projects/organizations, and collection drives for specific, need-based items, all with the goal of helping families thrive.
Impact StatementIn 2017, LTlov invested nearly $60,000 dollars into the Lake Travis community and provided $84,000 in goods and services for a total invested impact on our community of $144,000! LTlov has invested nearly $430,000 dollars into the Lake Travis area since 2009, including $75,000 in various scholarships to low income and handicapped children. In addition to financial contributions, in the past year alone, LTlov's donations of tangible goods and services include school supplies provided to all low-income LTISD students, food donations valued at $15,000 and dental care valued at $22,000, bringing our total investment through goods and services to $676,000. LTlov is the serving the low-income families in our community in a variety of ways with the goal of breaking the cycle of poverty through educational opportunities, health care and skills enrichment.
Needs StatementIn order for LTLov to continue to support and grow programs that address poverty, food instability, educational and social deprivation, and families struggling with the challenges of inadequate health insurance and supporting children with disabilities, we must have financial partners who trust LTlov's understanding of our community's needs, our unique position to investigate ways to meet those needs and our ability to provide meaningful solutions. A donation to LTlov is a donation to the Lake Travis community and a commitment to making Lake Travis the best community for everyone. Specifically, we would like to continue to grow our Kids Free Dental Day Follow-up Care program to provide patients with the comprehensive treatment necessary to restore them to full oral health, as well as increase our College Scholarship program to allow qualified past recipients to re-apply for monies each year for 4 years.
