Today, Your Gift Goes Twice As Far for Minnesota’s Youth

MAY 18, 2022

We are overwhelmed by the growing outpouring of support for LSS Youth & Family Services. LSS is especially grateful for the enduring leadership of one of our most faithful partners, the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation.

For the 2022 Benefit for Youth, the Schulze Family Foundation has generously offered to match every gift we receive, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000. That means that your gift of any amount will be doubled automatically until we reach this $100,000 goal.

Watch the matching gift board above to see our progress. If you haven’t done so already, please make a gift today that will impact the lives of twice as many young Minnesotans in the year to come.

Once again, we thank the Schulze Family Foundation for their inspiring generosity and their ongoing commitment to “enabling transformational change to benefit our communities.”

Thank You to Our Sponsor
