The Foundation's purpose is to raise college scholarship funds to further the education of student athletes who graduate from Portland High School in memory of Andrew G. Lano
The Lano Family Foundation (LFF), established in 2012, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the state of Maine. All funding raised is distributed locally.
Beginning in 2013, the LFF awarded the "Handy" Andy Lano Scholarship grant of $8,000 in 2013 and $10,000 in 2014, to a Portland High School (PHS) senior student- athlete who best emulates Andrew G. Lano, one of PHS's greatest 3-sport athletes. Funds are to be applied towards post secondary education.
Funds are raised annually at the "Action Andy" Memorial Classic and a Professional Golf Association Tour Caddie Day; which together profited $11K in 2013 and $22k in 2014.
The LFF also distributes funds to assist with Glaucoma Research.
The Lano Family Foundation is overwhelmed and greatly appreciates all the generous support received to date. Our family thanks all of the donors and sponsors from the bottom of our hearts as we continue to honor the memory of Andrew G. Lano by "investing in the future of student-athletes".
