ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
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.
Since our humble beginnings, LRSF has awarded over 6 million to nearly 5,200 recipients from approximately 561 donors over the years.
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 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!
