Each year, the LSS Foundation Board of Directors honors Founders Family members at a luncheon and introduces new members. This fall, LSS introduced four new members—Rev. Norris and Carolyn Einertson of Sioux Falls, Bette and Darrell Johnson of Brookings, Erv and DeMaris Nesheim of Rapid City, and Patricia Lee and Charles Yuill of Newell.
“The LSS Founders Family is a unique group of individuals who are committed to helping those in need by giving financial support in perpetuity,” says Betty Oldenkamp, LSS President/CEO. “We are thankful for their vision of serving those in need for generations to come.” Such a gift could be made to the LSS Foundation through a bequest by will, a charitable gift annuity, life insurance program, trust arrangement, or by a leadership gift (a current gift of $10,000 or accumulation thereof). “You may choose to be listed anonymously,” says Oldenkamp, “but please let us recognize you. We’d like the opportunity to thank you for your generosity.”
Last year, the LSS Foundation granted more than $174,000 to support the services of LSS.
