The LSE Foundation

How we serve up opportunity for students in our community


When you lift the bun off a Milo’s original burger you’ll notice something unexpected – an extra piece of meat. We call that the LSE, “the Little Something Extra”. Since 1946, that little extra piece of meat has served as a symbol for how we see the world. Beyond serving up great food, we are here to making people’s lives a little bit better. And we do that by always giving a little something extra, in all we do.

While we respect many, many causes, we also understand that our success has been a product of original thinking and opportunity. Originality and opportunity start with a great education.


To best help our friends and neighbors, we developed the LSE Foundation to deliver on a simple but powerful promise: Create opportunity by supporting local educational efforts.
