Our Beginnings

Sam_Dean2The Lake Arbor Foundation, Inc. (LAFI) was formed in 1997 as a community charitable organization under the leadership of the Founding President, Samuel H. Dean. The golf course owner subdivided the front 6.8 acres of the course and sold it to the Foundation at a reduced rate in order to get a tax-deductible contribution. A Maryland State matching grant facilitated by Senator Ulysses Currie, Legislative District 25, was used for the purchase.   The Internal Revenue Service designated LAFI as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, public charitable organization in 1998.
