Lancaster community forms nonprofit group named LEFSA

It’s official. The Lancaster community has a new nonprofit. Recently, the founders of the newly formed Lancaster Endowment Fund School Association, LEFSA for short, received word from the IRS their application for designation as a publicly supported charity was approved.
“We are extremely excited to have received this approval from the IRS and even more optimistic about the role this new organization will play in support of Lancaster School,” said President Nicole Thompson. “We have already held several organizational meetings to define our mission and goals, and hope to hit the ground running with our first membership drive scheduled for February of next year.”
For those individuals interested in making charitable donations to coincide with year-end for tax purposes, getting the blessing from the IRS is a great opportunity for them to take advantage of this IRS designation.
The new nonprofit’s goal is to provide additional financial support for Lancaster School by raising money and establishing an endowment fund, which the founders see as perpetual in nature. If you would like more information about LEFSA, its mission, board or committees, inquiries can be forwarded to the secretary of the organization at mcoffield@lancaster. k12.mn.us or to 401 Central Avenue South, Lancaster, MN 56735, or via telephone at (218) 762- 5400.
