Lendlease (US) Community Fund is a nonprofit organization that focuses its efforts on supporting the military men and women who live in homes and neighborhoods we've built, as well as supporting the communities where our employees work and live.

We support community growth and development by funding projects that address community challenges in the areas of housing, education, health, economic development and environmental sustainability, and create or support programming that improves the quality of life for military families who sacrifice so much for us.
