Lamport Family Foundation

Steven Lamport was a life-long resident of Marshall County and upon his passing he made sure that the Lamport family legacy would continue long into the future.  The Lamport Family Foundation is a permanently endowed fund with the South Dakota Community Foundation, that will provide scholarships to area youth and grants area churches.

The Lamport Family Foundation was established with assets from Mr. Lamport’s estate and totals over $2 million.  The dollars are invested in perpetuity and the earnings, totaling approximately $90,000 annually, will be awarded to Marshall County graduates and to local churches on a matching basis. 

Decisions on how the funds will be spent will be overseen by an advisory board appointed by Mr. Lamport prior to his passing.  They will work with the South Dakota Community Foundation to ensure that all recipients meet the criteria set forth by Mr. Lamport in his will.
