The David and Lura Lovell Foundation

At a time when only about 18% of top leadership positions in the workplace—including C-suite staff, vice presidents, directors, and senior managers—are held by women,[1] Girl Scouts of the USA and The David and Lura Lovell Foundation are collaborating to turn the tide.

Girl Scouts has been preparing girls to be leaders for over 100 years, and now, thanks to support from Lovell, we’ll be able to set up today’s girls for a better, brighter workplace tomorrow. A generous grant from the Lovell Foundation will allow GSUSA to develop an initiative* aimed at improving the future work landscape for girls and increasing the number of female leaders. GSUSA looks forward to its continued collaboration with the Lovell Foundation to ensure girls’ talents are a key part of our country’s future.

About The David and Lura Lovell Foundation
The Lovell Foundation grew from the passions and life experiences of founders David and Lura Lovell. Together they dealt with monumental challenges and opportunities—by connecting with others, crusading for change, creating success and experiencing peace and joy. Established in 1994, this family foundation continues to seek impact through Initiatives in Integrative Health and Wellness, Mental Health, Youth Access to the Arts, and Gender Parity. In its first 25 years, the foundation has invested over $26 million in 120 nonprofit organizations for local and national projects supporting people and programs that empower lives, provide opportunities, improve conditions and advance community. Today the foundation is propelled by the passions of the second and third generations of the Lovell family and their trusted advisors.

*More details about the initiative will be available in the coming months.
