Making a Local Impact: Grants & Scholarships

The Highland Lakes Legacy Fund is committed to building philanthropic resources that help make Marble Falls and surrounding communities a great place for everyone—today and tomorrow. We do so by providing grants and funds to local nonprofits and providing scholarships to local students. 

The Legacy Fund’s Community Endowment Fund was established in 2005 to provide grants assistance to area nonprofits organizations. It consists of funds earned through the Endowment, funds contributed by donors and monies raised through community-wide events. The Legacy Community Endowment Fund has granted over $180,000 to area nonprofit organizations.
