The LIGHT Foundation was founded in 2016 by the Cockerham family and close friends with the shared mission to generate leadership and development opportunities for today’s youth. Building upon our involvement in several youth-focused organizations for several decades, we created The LIGHT Foundation with the unique purpose of collaborating with other non-profit entities with like-minded missions as well as producing programs and advantages for youth.
In March 2020, the LIGHT Foundation expanded into a virtual space to explore impactful ways to fulfill the mission to create life-changing opportunities for youth. In 2021, we launched LIGHT Box Productions which produces original video, website and social media content along with philanthropic event management to expand and strengthen impact for youth-forward organizations.
