The David H. Lawson Foundation was organized for charitable and educational purposes to benefit citizens with developmental and/or other intellectual disabilities.

Dr. David Lawson was committed to expanding opportunities and enhancing the quality of life of persons with developmental and/or other intellectual disabilities for over 30 years.

The Foundation is continuing his legacy by supporting programs and initiatives to increase access to quality services.

We envision organizations and individuals working collaboratively and creatively to satisfy the needs and choices of the consumers we are dedicated to supporting.
