The Under the Lights Foundation is dedicated to helping students or programs in financial need. Our goal is to help students achieve their career goals, an objective which has the added benefit of bettering the community at large. We want to ensure that no student will deprived of the ability to participate in extracurricular activities due to personal financial burden or program shortage of funds.
Our mission is to allow students the ability to learn necessary life skills and have fun while doing it within organized sports and fine arts, and not let money stand in the way.
More is expected of students as they move into middle and high school on a physical, emotional and even financial level. Numbers typically dwindle due to the financial hardship that some students and programs face.
We choose to remove the barrier of entry for students and allow them to participate in activities that can offer many benefits such as higher school achievement, lower dropout rates, improved health or body and mind and the development of teamwork, discipline, problem-solving skills and enhanced self confidence.
Our foundation aims to provide the necessary funds so that students can have the educational and life benefits of organized sports and fine arts and give them the opportunity to be a part of something special.
