About us

The Uggla Family Foundation is a family-run foundation in its first generation of giving. Founded by Lance Uggla, father to four children, the foundation’s objective is to fund initiatives and projects that align with its values and charitable pillars providing long term benefit to the community it serves.

The Uggla Family members work together to identify causes where they can create a long-lasting impact on a cause. The family wants to make commitments that last and will benefit future generations to come.
