Caring for Community



John Hemmingson and the partners and employees at Lakeside have a long history of giving back to the communities in the greater Inland Northwest and beyond. Their contributions and philanthropic efforts make real and lasting change. Hemmingson and our partners seek out organizations and projects that reflect their values, to make the Inland Northwest, — and the world — a better, healthier, happier place to live. 

Youth Advocacy

“If we don’t stand for children, we don’t stand for much.” 

~ Marian Wright Edelman

Educational Advancement

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” 

~ Nelson Mandela

Fighting Poverty

“The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.”

— Mother Teresa, Missionary and Saint.

Passion Projects

“Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars, to change the world.”

Harriet Tubman
