The Lawson Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization that seeks to assist in shaping the future of our community by creating a shared sense of belonging and strengthening the social, cultural, and economic vibrancy of Lawson, Missouri.

The Foundation oversees fundraising efforts for various projects that benefit the quality of life for residents in Lawson. One of our first major undertakings is raising funds for a new ADA-compliant playground for the Lawson City Park. Events such as Piccadilly, Hickadilly are raising funds for the playground. For more information on upcoming fundraisers, visit our Facebook event page.

In 2023, the Foundation will begin overseeing the popular haunted house attraction that funds scholarships for local graduating seniors. The Haunt will take place weekends in October. More details on The Haunt’s Facebook page.

The Foundation will also be overseeing the Lawson Giving Tree, which supports families in need during the holidays. More information coming soon.

Board members include:

Dawn Pointer (President), Nathan Cates (Vice President), Jennifer Tiede (Treasurer), Matt Nolker, Scot Tipton, Melissa Hazlett, Michael Stephenson and Tosha Jackson (City Staff and Secretary).

Donations to the Lawson Community Foundation are tax deductible.
