The Lazarus Foundation, Inc. is a public charitable and educational 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to provide at-risk and disadvantaged high school and college students with financial support, educational services, and mentoring. We want to be a part of developing these students into responsible, productive, and economically independent citizens. We extend our work across the United States and the Caribbean.
