The University of Alabama was our first full funded annuity in the amount of $210,000 which has provided multiple scholarships since 2017' .  We are extremely proud of the following recipients who have continued Ingram's legacy through their continued success at the University of Alabama.

The Ingram Lee Foundation has funded over $200,000 towards our $250,000 annuity over the past 3 years and we expect to fully fund this scholarship in 2020.  Ingram and Pat Lee lived in New Orleans and were extremely proud of the Louisiana culture and traditions and LSU has always been on the top of the list when representing this great state.

Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 hurricane that made landfall on Texas and Louisiana in August 2017, causing catastrophic flooding and many deaths.  Kingwood High School was decimated from the hurricane leaving the school and community without a high school and with the burden or rebuilding.  

The Ingram Lee Foundation was proud to team up with the Emeril Lagasse Foundation in awarding $100,000 to the school for their rebuilding efforts.

Due to the quick action of the community and faculty the school was rebuilt in record time and the community has been rejuvenated.

We were excited to include the University of Notre Dame to our list of college annuities in 2019 where the Board of Directors has approved $100,000 to start up this scholarship fund. 

The support from the University of Notre Dame and their alumni has been appreciated and we hope to see you all in 2020 at our events.
The 2019 wildfire season was a fire season in California, United States. As of December 22, 2019, over 7,860 fires have been recorded according to Cal Fire and the US Forest Service, totaling an estimated of 259,823 acres of burned land. 

The California Wineries have been a major part of the growth of the Ingram Lee Foundation since our inception in 2012.  Their philanthropic efforts have been amazing ranging from custom labelling of "Ingram Lee Cuvee" wine (William Selyem), Wine Tastings and trips (Arista, AldenAlli, Thompson 31Fifty, Dakota Shy) and donations of magnums.

Following the tragedies in 2019 we felt a need to give back to this philanthropic community and the best way to do this is through a scholarship for higher learning.  We are currently working with several wineries and schools in developing this scholarship which will focus on families of first responders.  The Ingram Lee Foundation Board of Directors allocated $50,000 to start up this scholarship fund and we anticipate it will be operating in 2020.
