About the Lassahn-Worrell Fund for Community Support Services

This fund was created by Price L. Worrell and his mother, Pamela Henry Lassahn, to support organizations and projects that give a hand up to those in need in eastern Idaho. 

Funding Focus

The Lassahn-Worrell Fund for Community Support Services makes grants solely in eastern Idaho (Bannock, Bear Lake, Bingham, Bonneville, Butte, Caribou, Clark, Custer, Franklin, Fremont, Jefferson, Lemhi, Madison, Oneida, Power and Teton counties) to organizations and projects that do at least two of the following: 

  • Develop and/or provide direct support services to disenfranchised populations;
  • Educate stakeholders, consumers, service providers or the public-at-large about disenfranchised populations with the aim to remove the stigma and/or discrimination generally surrounding those populations; and/or 
  • Provide advocacy on behalf of disenfranchised populations.

“Disenfranchised populations” include, but are not limited to, those facing poverty, homelessness, domestic violence, mental illness, or substance abuse disorders, or populations that have historically faced discrimination based on race, gender identity, etc. 

The Lassahn-Worrell Fund for Community Support Services may have many more requests for funds than it has funds available. One of the ways to address this deficit is to use funds available for grants as seed money to support proposals which appear to have the ability, over the course of a few years, to become self-supporting. While this is never the only criteria used to determine which grant applications are approved, an organization with the ability to satisfy this criteria should include an appropriate explanation in its application of its plan for becoming self-sustaining.

Eligibility:

  • Organizations eligible to apply include tax exempt organizations with current 501(c)(3) public charities, county or municipality agencies or departments, or public education institutions.
  • ICF will occasionally fund projects initiated by organizations that do not have current federal tax exempt status if the organization secures a qualifying tax exempt fiscal sponsor. 

Preferences:

  • Where applicable, grant applicants must demonstrate that persons receiving their direct support services have already had their basic needs (like food and shelter) met to ensure that recipients have the best possible chance of success.
