About the Fund
The Lac Courte Oreilles Foundation (LCOFI) provides funding for the protection, preservation and restoration of the water quality of Lac Courte Oreilles. The Foundation works closely with the Courte Oreilles Lakes Association (COLA) and other stakeholders to underwrite programs that will enhance the value of our aquatic treasure.
To achieve its purposes, the Corporation’s funds are used to stop pollution, particularly phosphorus pollution, to restore habitat, research water quality issues, combat aquatic invasive species, meet financial requirements under state grants that benefit the water quality of the lake, educate property owners and the public about proper lake stewardship practices, protect the water quality of the lake and for such other uses as may be appropriate.
It is our hope that the Foundation can successfully perform these functions so that lake front owners, day users, and visitors to our lake can enjoy a clean and beautiful lake for decades.
Since this is an Agency Endowment Fund, all contributions must be made directly to LCOFI.
