Lakeview East Community Partnership – Giving Back to the Community

Community Enrichment

Lakeview East Community Partnership (LVECP) recognizes the need for community development to further enrich and celebrate the Lakeview East’s vibrant community. LVECP’s mission is to contribute to local non-profits and to enhance the quality of life in Lakeview by supporting the arts, safety programs, community development and beautification projects.

Supporting the Arts

The Lakeview East community hosts a prominent art scene and LVECP supports numerous Lakeview East community art endeavors. The Lakeview East Festival of the Arts, public art initiatives and The Belmont Theatre District benefit from the contributions from the LVECP.  The Belmont Theater District is Lakeview’s collection of theatres within and around the Lakeview community, providing playgoers an extensive list of theatre and live performance offerings.  LVECP has a strong public art program to beautify and enhance the community.

Community Development

LVECP contributes to local neighborhood groups, schools, non-profits and organizations to help develop a stronger community with residents and families.  Seasonal events and programs are supported by LVECP to engage the cultural diverse neighborhood.  LVECP supports safety and outreach programs that will keep our community safe.

Lakeview LGBTQ Community

Supplementing Lakeview East’s vast support and involvement in the LGBTQ community, LVECP has constructed partnerships with LGBTQ advocate and resourced-based organizations. LVECP advocates for the LGBTQ community by donating to organizations that provide essential resources to the LGBTQ community.
