Ignite the Light is a giving program that helps ensure our sustainability.

At Little Lights, we want to be around for generations. Committing to give regularly ensures that we are sustainable for years to come, and it represents your ongoing commitment and investment in our work. Without our committed friends who understand the value of investing in the future of the kids, teens, adults, and families we serve, our work would not be possible.

As the program continues to grow and represent a larger percentage of our budget – and a greater investment in our future by kind and generous members of ITLGS – we envision it becoming our single, largest revenue stream and principle relationship tool.

Who does your gift help?

Kids, teens, adults, and families in Washington, DC, primarily from Potomac Gardens and Hopkins public housing communities where the average annual household income is around $11,000 per year. Your monthly gift will help us continue to grow and strengthen as we envision Little Lights being an ever-increasing blessing to children and families for decades and decades to come.  The future holds numerous opportunities for the Little Lights community to impact more lives and be greater witnesses for Christ.  With your Ignite the Light Giving Society monthly gift, we can achieve more.  These are exciting and hopeful times for Little Lights.

How does your gift help?

By continuing, improving, and expanding our after-school, mentoring, summer, and job training programs.  Additionally by supporting full and part-time staff members from the communities we serve and by building meaningful and impactful relationships with the children and families we serve.
