LRSF - Celebrating 65 Years and a Record Breaking Award Year!
Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation was founded in 1956 by a small committee of civic leaders looking for a way to support their community. In 1956, eight local clubs, businesses, and individuals awarded $2,650 to 17 students.
This year, through the generosity of 285 donors, over a half million dollars was awarded to 292 recipients.
From 1956-2021, LRSF over 7.5 million dollars has been awarded to more than 5,700 recipients from over 600 donor funds.
Many of our scholarship funds are memorials set up by families when a loved one passes away or from bequests. Each memorial tells the story of a person who is no longer with us, but is still helping those they have left behind. Other scholarship funds come from civic groups, individuals and area businesses, to invest in the youth of our local communities.
Thanks to the hundreds of donors, volunteer board members, participants in our fundraising projects, and all those who contributed to LRSF since 1956. We couldn't do it without you!
