Karin Gausman
Leader Accreditation Fund (KGF)

Leader Accreditation Department

A Leader accreditation fund has been set up in memory of Karin Gausman to express our deep gratitude to her for helping Leader Applicants and Leader Accreditation Department (LAD) representatives worldwide with their education and enrichment opportunities. 

Karin was in the LAD for many years and she served as one of two LLLI LAD Directors from 2005 to 2010. She accredited more than 400 Leaders and she once corresponded with more than 80 Applicants worldwide. Karin also created several Leader application resources such as Leader Applicant’s Resource Kit. Before Karin passed away from cancer in 2016, she helped LLL Leaders who were suffering from cancer and offered her support as much as possible. 

Please consider donating to help accredit more LLL Leaders and help support Leader Applicants and LAD representatives with financial difficulties. With this fund, some of the places and families that most need La Leche League Leaders and up-to-date breastfeeding information will be able to receive LLL support.
