The Brandon S. Kramm Memorial Endowment Fund
The Brandon S. Kramm Memorial Endowment Fund was established in 2014 by friends, classmates and members of the Kramm family to provide support for athletic programs and/or facilities with resources to strengthen and maintain the district’s athletic programs.
Brandon was a 2001 graduate of Lewisburg Area High School (LAHS) where he was an exemplary student and a stand-out athlete in football, basketball and baseball. He was a 2005 graduate of Harvard University with a degree in Economics and a minor in Spanish. As a lasting tribute to the impact Brandon had on his friends, family and the LAHS community, the endowment was established to ensure funding for current and future high school students for distinguished athletic programs and facilities.
Based on a request from Brandon's family and friends, in 2016 the foundation offered to use endowment funds to construct "The Brandon Kramm Memorial Baseball Field" at the new high school campus. A goal of $350,000-$500,000 was established to make this project a reality.
The Brandon Kramm Baseball Field Project Update:
· Through September 2017, $170,000 has been raised toward the project's goal.
· In September 2017, the foundation announced its intention to lease land from the school district to construct the baseball field at the new high school campus. Plans are underway to create a lease agreement.
· If the fundraising goal is met, construction can begin as early as June/July 2018!
· Architect, Ted Strosser has offered "pro-bono" services to the foundation to design and oversee development of the field, along with a committee that will include family and friends of Brandon.
