Mission and History

The mission of the Lakeland Union High School District Foundation, Inc. is to promote and support educational advancement opportunities for LUHS district students through the effective application of tax deductible donor contributions and other resources and by promoting education and collaboration among our district leaders, educators, volunteers and professional advisors.

Is the LUHS District Foundation the same as Lakeland Union High School?

The LUHS District Foundation, Inc. is a separate corporate entity from Lakeland Union High School. The Lakeland Union High School Board of Education authorized the transfer of approximately $35,000 of seed money to start the foundation. These funds were bequest to LUHS from the estate of Minocqua resident Doug Gasper who passed away in 2013. The funds arrived with no special instructions for use, though we know Doug wanted to support kids. The LUHS District Foundation and Lakeland Union High School have a memorandum of understanding that states that the two entities will assist each other in pursuit of their missions. The current LUHS District Administrator attends LUHS District Foundation board meetings as an ex-officio, non-voting member to assist us in our efforts and keep us informed of student needs.
