About the Foundation

David B. Lichtenstein Sr. attended law school and went on to establish the Liberty Loan Corp., which ultimately grew to more than 200 offices. His business success allowed him to formalize his philanthropy in 1947 and found the Lichtenstein Foundation, a 501(c)(3) private foundation that stipulates all proceeds be used to benefit the people of Missouri.

The Foundation has given several gifts to the Missouri Botanical Garden, including the Lichtenstein Lodge at Shaw Nature Reserve and the new Victorian Garden.

In Columbia the Foundation provides much needed funding to several organizations, including the Boone County Health Department’s K-12 immunization program, the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit, and the Ellis Fischel Cancer Center.

The foundation is currently considering grants in four major areas:

  • Cancer Awareness and Breast Cancer Support – to foster innovation and research and support clinical services and outreach.
  • Assistance to Special Needs Kids – to support organizations that provide programs and services to children with disabilities.
  • Health and Welfare – to assist organizations providing health programs and services for children and young adults.
  • Arts, Education and Conservation – to foster education and the arts and provide support for animal conservation and research.
