Spotlighting and Supporting Local Heroes in Education

It is with tremendous joy in my heart that I announce the launch of our nonprofit organization, LumenSparQ. Our mission at LumenSparQ is to spotlight and support local heroes in education, both adults and students, performing a social good.

We support these heroes through financial, material, and/or human resources based on the unique needs of each project. And we will share their inspiring stories on our website.

A Long Time Coming

We have discussed and dreamed about the idea of creating a nonprofit organization for years. We knew we wanted to positively impact people’s lives, particularly people at an economic disadvantage or facing struggles that most of us might never encounter.

We also knew that we wanted to start in the field we understood best, education. Because of our connections to the people and resources in this field, and because public education is a sector in great need at all age levels, this was a desirable starting point.

Our focus areas may likely shift over time, as we grow as an organization and our mission evolves. For now, we would like to focus on spotlighting local heroes that are already doing good work and supporting them through financial, human, and material resources. Each case is unique, and our response will reflect that uniqueness accordingly.

If you are reading this, then you likely share in our hope to make the world a better place, and you probably care about the public education system and hope to support efforts to improve it. We’d love to hear from you.

Where do we hope to be a year from now? If we can successfully fund four projects, once a quarter, we would be very satisfied. It may seem like a small goal, but it’s more than we are doing now, and that’s a good thing.

I hope you can support us with a follow and a share, and just stay in touch. With our focus on public schools and underserved communities, we are on the lookout for potential heroes to spotlight and support. If you have someone in mind, please reach out. See this post for details.
