LRA Foundation Scholarship Students


In 1987 the LRA established a donor advised Fund which is known today as The Lake Rabun Foundation. In 2012, the Lake Rabun Foundation announced that over $1 Million dollars had been contributed to Rabun County in college scholarships and assistance to numerous charitable endeavors. In 2013, it was announced that more than 100 Rabun County students have received college scholarships from the Foundation.  Each year more than $50,000 is directed to scholarship assistance. The Foundation is supported by an Annual Fund and by many events on the lake such as the Flea Market, the Tour of Homes and the Rabun Ramble.  Contributions to the Scholarship Fund should be sent to: Lake Rabun Foundation, P.O. Box 114, Lakemont, GA 30552.  Checks should be payable to: NGCF - Lake Rabun Scholarship Fund.
