Thank you for helping make the 2023 Taste of Lafayette a big success!   

We are most appreciative of everyone’s time, sponsorships, participation, and efforts. Our restaurants out did themselves once again! The food samplings were delicious, each stop shared a new savory taste or sweet treat, amazing beverage offerings and displays throughout. The entertainment was great and added to the fun ambiance of the night. AND we couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better crowd. Thanks to everyone who participated in the downtown restaurant tour.

About the Community Foundation of Lafayette

The Community Foundation of Lafayette, in conjunction with its generous donors and business partners is proud of the work it has done to support community nonprofits for more than two decades. Since 1999, the Community Foundation has played an integral part in some of Lafayette’s most important projects, including the Lafayette Library and Learning Center, the permanent stage at the Lafayette Reservoir and Lamorinda Village. Most recently, LCF has supported the efforts of The Park Theater Trust which is working toward revitalizing Lafayette’s beloved Park Theater.

The Community Foundation’s most important work, however, is giving Excellence Grants to local nonprofits that support and touch the lives of so many. For almost 25 years, the Community Foundation has distributed hundreds of grants totaling more than $1 million to organizations in the categories of Human Services, Seniors, Youth Development & Education and Arts & Culture.

The Community Foundation takes great care in selecting respected, viable nonprofits that make the greatest impact on the communities they serve. Its Grants Committee, conducts in-depth analyses of these organizations so donors and businesses can be certain their investment is going to worthwhile causes that provide the highest level of assistance to those in need.
