The Lauren McCluskey Foundation was founded to honor Lauren’s legacy. As a young adult, Lauren was always there for her friends and those outside her network as a leader, a resource, and as someone who listened. Our mission is to let Lauren’s light shine by supporting her passions, including animal welfare, athletics, and by making campuses across the country a place where students are safe, supported, and have the ability to thrive.
The Foundation has a comprehensive plan to change the culture that responds poorly to dating violence and stalking on the more than 4,000 campuses that receive Title IX funding in the United States.
The Foundation provides financial assistance to student Track & Field athletes and is working with the University of Utah to develop an indoor practice facility in honor of Lauren, so she will always have a presence on campus.
The Foundation supports animal shelters and is particularly committed to helping cats become more adoptable through the Lauren McCluskey Cat Wing at the Whitman County Humane Society.
