Our foundation was originally formed in 2005 by Herb Schilling, Ed Krampe, and Todd Citron. Three businessmen who together have served the Upper Lafayette territory for more than 150 years combined. Along with Jan Swift and a dedicated board of directors, the foundation provided networking and unique marketing services in support of our local businesses. 

Now, our mission honors our beginning by continuing to create those support structures that will support stability and growth. We will drive economic development through a community support approach. 

Upper Lafayette will thrive. Our businesses will thrive. Our community will thrive.

Your support and involvement will make it possible.
