Founded in 2013 Giving Back to the Wilmot, SD area

Some say Wilmot will never be the same without Loren. Others value the legacy he left and the loyalty he showed to the small community. Many are unaware of just how great Loren J. Ammann’s legacy will become.

As a prominent “lifetime” member of the community, Loren wore many hats and served in many capacities. When he passed away on December 5, 2012, Loren wanted his estate to give back to the community of Wilmot forever. His sister, Beverly, partnered with the South Dakota Community Foundation to establish a designated fund managed solely for the benefit of Wilmot and its residents. With a gift of over $830,000 the Loren J. Ammann Foundation was formed.


The Loren J. Ammann Foundation board of directors has distributed over $28,000 to nonprofit groups and organizations in Wilmot.
