La Crosse Neighborhoods Inc. (LCNI) was created in 2015 by bringing together leaders from several of La Crosse’s neighborhood associations so that these associations could share resources and the benefits of becoming a 501(c)3 organization. In the years since its creation, LCNI has grown to support not only neighborhood associations but a wide array of projects that are all working for the betterment of our community. Some of our larger projects include the Memorial Pool Fund and Drift Cycle which has recently launched to be its own 501(c)3 organization.

Most recently LCNI entered into a memorandum of understanding with the La Crosse Community Foundation providing us even more support for our projects. Through the Community Foundation we now have the support of their affiliate administrator and their accounting software. We are excited to continue to grow our umbrella and support the La Crosse area through fiscal sponsorship!
