From the majestic heights of Mt. Diablo to the fertile agricultural flatlands of Brentwood and Byron, Contra Costa County is a richly diversified area of California. It encompasses the meandering waterways and shores of the Delta, the thriving business centers of Concord and Walnut Creek, and the small town charm of Danville. It is home to a rapidly emerging high-tech sector in Richmond and the San Ramon business corridor, as well as some of the country's finest produce farms in Brentwood and east county. One of the fastest growing counties in all of California, Contra Costa covers over 730 square miles and is home to just under one million residents.

The Dean & Margaret Lesher Foundation has a clear and simple mission - to enhance the quality of life for the residents of this extraordinary place. Established in 1989, the grants of the Foundation have touched many lives and communities. From computer grants in the schools, to funding for day care centers, homeless shelters, and performing arts venues - the mission of the Lesher Foundation is to support our nonprofit partners and join with them to create a better place. This report details the charitable grants made from 2000 to the present here in Contra Costa County and provides a brief glimpse into our dynamic and energetic nonprofit community. Distributing grants totaling just over $10 million over the past five years, the Lesher Foundation fervently believes in the strength of our partners - those nonprofit organizations who are dedicated to creating a better life for our residents.

As we continue the work of improving Contra Costa, the Lesher Foundation seeks to identify those programs and projects that reflect the service excellence that we believe our residents deserve. From our three focus areas - significant educational support for our young people - a commitment to the visual and performing arts essential to a vibrant and healthy community - and supporting a wide variety of programs to nurture children and strengthen families - we continue to believe that the road towards a better Contra Costa is a journey well worth taking.
