Charities Our Warriors Support
“The Larson Foundation has left lasting marks upon Urban K-Life of St. Louis. Their sincere partnership and resources to help develop and nurture urban youth have been genuine, invaluable, engaging, and effective.”
“Human Coalition is grateful for the support of Larson as we serve women facing unexpected pregnancies with life-affirming resources, compassion, and hope.”
“The Larson Foundation has provided many children with life-changing surgeries. They have also donated funds to provide a much-needed vehicle and they are sponsoring the daily needs of many children who have been rescued from crisis situations. These children are now living in one of our three homes, which provides them with love, care, and a safe place to call home until we either return them to their extended family or in the majority of cases find them their forever family.”
How is LFF Structured?
LFF is a 501(c)(3) Private Foundation organized in the State of Missouri. Our approved exempted activities include program related investments to establish and support local businesses in emerging markets. These sustainable businesses will impact local economics through job creation and market expansion while enabling LFF to partner within communities in implementing sustainable development initiatives.
How Does the LFF Structure Serve its Vision?
Our structure allows us to combine the best aspects of the non-profit and for-profit models. We believe that sustainable business can and should have a holistic impact within the community it serves, and our exempted purpose allows for legitimate for-profit start-up businesses to be established, owned, and operated by LFF. LFF partnership in these businesses ensures that the community impact vision for each project remains in focus as our non-profit status commits all profits to be utilized in furtherance of our exempted purpose.
This structure allows independently sustained products, markets, and revenues to impact the economies of each community while ensuring resources generated are utilized in service toward the flourishing of each community.
