The Lancaster, Wisconsin, Scholarship Foundation was created to provide financial assistance to Lancaster, Wisconsin, students seeking to pursue education beyond high school. The Lancaster Scholarship Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit, non-stock corporation established in July 1995. It is comprised of community members, including nine board members, elected for three-year terms, and one appointed historian. See Historical List of LSF Board Members.
The mission of the Lancaster Scholarship Foundation, Inc., is to encourage pursuit of post-secondary education. Lancaster Scholarship Foundation, Inc., is organized as a receptacle for monies designated for scholarships for the benefit of seniors in the Lancaster School District who have exhibited scholarship, leadership, citizenship, work ethic, and community involvement.
Why a Foundation?
The foundation provides a permanent endowment fund that generates scholarships to benefit seniors in the Lancaster, Wisconsin, School District. Scholarships will be awarded from income generated by the fund. The foundation exists to supplement existing scholarship programs, not replace them. With the escalating costs of post-secondary education, there is increasing need for scholarships to be available to a wider variety of students, not just those who excel academically.
Who is Eligible?
The scholarships will be awarded from the foundation’s resources to graduating seniors enrolled in the Lancaster, Wisconsin, School District who pursue a program of at least one year in length in any accredited post-secondary educational institution.
How can you help us with our mission?
Annual membership is included with every tax-deductible gift of $20 or more. A gift of $30 or more qualifies a couple for membership in the corporation for one fiscal year. You may donate online through PayPal or you may download and print the Donation Form.
Larger donations and additional contributions may be made at any time. With donor consent, each one-time special donation of $10,000 or more will result in a scholarship being named for the donor. Please consider including the foundation in your estate planning.
LSF has awarded over $150,000 to students since we started awarding scholarships in 1999.
