About the Heuer Foundation
Helping People Toward a Better Tomorrow

Lelia Heuer lived most of her life in the Lebanon area. She was a member of Candock Baptist Church and was a great supporter of missions in Haiti. She was very generous lady who did numerous good deeds including establishing several scholarships for pre-medical students at Drury University.

Her legacy continues through this Foundation as it seeks to provide assistance to worthy organizations dealing with health scholarships, broad health issues and animals.

Combined distributions by the Foundation since its inception in 1996 total over $1.3 million.
