Giving Back

This year the LKN Fondo will benefit four local nonprofits. Details provided below.


Hospice & Palliative Care Lake Norman

Hospice can help individuals and families coping with a life-limiting illness define what is important to them.  Hospice is about making the most of each day and enjoying the best quality of life possible.  It’s about meeting the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of individuals and their families.  We will bring our care to you, whether in the home, assisted living community, long term care community, or hospital. 

Hospice is much more than just care at the end of life.  It is comprehensive mind, body, and spiritual care for the individual as well as the circle of friends and family who care for the patient.  

Our caring staff members provide more than just the right medications.  They address fears and anxiety.  They help patients and families know what to expect and how to plan for the future.  They offer physical support and comfort.  Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region offers a full scope of services for patients and their loved ones.

David Moore Foundation

The David Moore Foundation is a non-profit public charity with the mission of raising awareness and funds to support research and care of Alzheimer’s Disease.

S.A.F.E. LKN – Street Access For Everyone

Our nonprofit (SAFE) was formed in 2020 after a fellow cyclist and local legend was struck and killed in Mooresville on his way home from one of his many weekly 100 mile bike rides. Cyclists have always had the legal right to use the full lane and we want motorists to know the law as well. These signs make existing law known road users. Streets are not just for motor vehicles. They are transportation pathways used for many types of vehicles, motorized or otherwise. We exist to make these streets safe for all users including bicycles, pedestrians, motor vehicles.

Lake Norman Humane Society

Lake Norman Humane is a non-profit 501(c)3 animal welfare organization that is primarily volunteer base. Lake Norman Humane focuses on intakes from local animal controls in Lake Norman and surrounding communities. Whether you are looking for a puppy, cat, guinea pig, or bird; Lake Norman Humane houses a wide variety of animals looking for their forever home.
