How We Finance Our Projects:

Much of our funding is generated by donations of gently used merchandise which we sell in our thrift shops Bargain Books and the LVIS Thrift Shop, Bargain Box These funds are supplemented by the money raised at our annual LVIS Fair and additional monetary contributions through the efforts of the Development Committee.The money we raise annually allows us to continue our ambitious programs of trees and greens maintenance, college scholarships, and other community projects. Any financial support that you can give us would be used wisely to carry out our mission.

Memorial Tree & Plaque Program

The LVIS offers an opportunity for a loved one to be remembered either with a new street tree and memorial plaque, or by a memorial plaque placed by an existing tree. We will purchase the plaque and/or tree on your behalf as well as install and maintain what you choose.
The costs to the donor for a tree and plaque start at $1,000 and vary according to the type of tree selected.
If you choose to adopt a tree and purchase a plaque, the cost of $1,000 covers the plaque and future care of the tree.
