Luce family to match donations to Habitat for Humanity fund


The family of Stanford L. Luce has announced that it will match all donations made to the Greater Oxford Community Foundation fund in Luce’s name. The fund supports Habitat for Humanity projects in the Oxford area, including building new homes, developing land, educating partner families and launching new programs.

Luce died in 2007 was a French professor at Miami from 1952 to 1988. 

James Luce, the son of Stanford, said that at his father’s funeral he was surrounded by people that he knew growing up in Oxford– except for one woman. 

“She came up to me after the funeral and shared that she was a lawyer, and her daughter was in law school,” James Luce wrote in a press release announcing the pledged donation.

“Many years ago, when she had met my father, she was living out of her car with her daughter when Habitat built her a home. She used that house as home base while she went to law school, and because of that her daughter was able to do the same.”
