What if you could change the world? What if you could do something today that would forever change the course of human interaction for the better? It has happened in the past. One man or woman, one idea: on so many occasions, it has caused positive change. Think Einstein. Think Lincoln, Teresa, Jefferson, and Gandhi. Now, think you.
A few years ago, after working hard to build a company from scratch to one worth several hundred millions in value it hit me. People all around the world are at war. People kill people. We remain blissfully unaware of where new genius lies, and we’re not consistently sparking philanthropy.
So, I decided to start a foundation.
With the intent of giving something back to life, I created The La Jolla Foundation Inc., a 501c3 California Corporation with the intention of building it into a one hundred-million dollar endowed foundation in the next 10 years.
Three things: planting the peace-inspiring seeds of sport where there is war; finding and supporting the next generation of Einsteins, and sparking and catapulting new philanthropic causes into reality.
It may take up to 1000 years for planet earth to become a peaceful place. It may take that long for us to wake up and realize that the miracle of life is something that we as a species have taken for granted, wasted, and destroyed; and is something that we now need to treasure. Among other things, it will take sport, new genius, and new initiatives to change the world.
We have the future and we have each other. In ten generations, a one hundred million dollar endowed foundation will be a powerful positive force for this place we call home, and for the people we live with on this iron rock spinning around the sun.
Please contribute in some fashion to our objectives. We need help. Contact us if you want to get involved; we’re waiting for you.
Do a marathon or triathlon in our name. Contribute money or time. 80% of your contribution will go into an endowment fund that will live forever, with the interest from this fund forever destined to invest in projects and people that will change the world.
The La Jolla Foundation now takes its place in the history of time, destined to nudge the world in the direction of peace, prosperity and philanthropy. In a big messy world, it’s nice to know you can help.
