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 registered in the state of Maine.  All funding raised is distributed locally.

Beginning in 2013, the “Handy Andy” Lano Scholarship Grant in the amount of $10,000 has been awarded each year 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 directly applied towards post secondary education.

Funds are raised annually at the “Action Andy” Memorial Golf Classic and a PGA Tour Caddie Day; which together have profited nearly $100,000 since 2013!

The LFF also distributes funds annually to the Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine to assist with Glaucoma research, as well as partnering with the Maine State Golf Association to award a scholarship for secondary education in the memory of Andrew G. Lano. Additionally,the LFF supports the Portland Boys & Girls Youth basketball program.

The Lano Family Foundation is most grateful and appreciates all the generous support received to date. Our family is thankful to 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”.
