Lords of Light Foundation’s vision is to “Fund The Foot Soldiers”. There are many non profit and for profit organizations that are very good at what we call the ground game. What we do is financially support these people.
We came across a very interesting young lady. She has been working on her non profit for many years. Currently, she has gathered 260 volunteers, working with 40 students who are receiving one on one academic and career support, and they currently support 250 families by growing produce. All this has been put together while she works full time at a job to pay her bills. Our question is, how much more could she do if she was able to work full time on her non profit?
Can you imagine her reaction? “Hello, we are with Lords of Light Foundation and we have been following your story. We have two questions for you. How much do you make at your job? How much more could you do with your non profit if you could focus on it full time? Here is a check for the amount you made last year at your job and we will be here next year as well”. After she is done crying, imagine just how much more she will accomplish. This is what we call “funding the foot soldiers!”
We have designed our program to find and fund these people. Each “foot soldier” will be given a simple but effective set of reporting guidelines to follow regarding how these funds are to be spent. Our Foundation will evaluate their work every six months.
Capturing the heart felt emotion of each foot soldier awarded funding and sharing that across all platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. We feel this will help our foundation to attract both donors and foot soldiers.
