The LSS Foundation, Inc. makes a quarterly distribution to LSS, which supports the hope and healing brought to more than 30,000 people annually, including clients receiving direct care as well as their family members, through the many programs LSS offers throughout Wisconsin and Upper Michigan.

In addition to the annual distribution, the LSS Foundation, Inc. supports innovative initiatives, capital projects and the special needs of LSS programs.

“Immediate needs will always be there. I want to ensure LSS will be around to address future immediate needs.” – Becky Stellmacher, LSS Foundation, Inc. donor


What are your Philanthropic Goals?

Becky Stellmacher and her husband Jon are very intentional philanthropists. They support organizations that address human concerns locally, regionally, nationally, and globally. In addition to considering the geographic reach of their giving, they are also mindful of the “time reach” of their gifts.

They want to ensure that the good work they support will be sustained long past their lifetimes, into perpetuity. That’s why Becky and Jon support the LSS Foundation, Inc.
