On Wednesday, September 26, 2018 join us for a one-day opportunity to gather around a table with friends, neighbors, colleagues, and strangers to gather around a shared meal and have a real conversation about what’s important to us and how we can take action in our community.

Last year, over 1,500 participants came together throughout Lake County, Indiana to discuss the positive work happing in their communities as well as the challenges their communities face.

2018 marks Legacy Foundation’s 25th anniversary and we believe there is no better way to celebrate this milestone than to bring everyone to the table to make Lake County a stronger, safer and more dynamic.

Be part of the conversation. Your Voice Matters.


PARTNERS


Legacy Foundation is one of 10 community foundations across the U.S. replicating the On the Table initiative this year with funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Support for On the Table is one part of Knight Foundation’s efforts to help cities attract and keep talented people, expand economic opportunity and create a culture of civic engagement. The Knight Foundation believes that successful communities are equitable, inclusive and participatory.
