Who We Are

At the Light Foundation, we believe through hard work and achievement, self–confidence is built. This is one of the best defenses a child can have against negative influences. Through our unique programming, we provide young adults outdoor and hands-on learning opportunities and inspire young people to believe in themselves and their ability to be great leaders. Not only are we helping them down their own path toward becoming successful adults, but we are building healthy, responsible, and motivated citizens for generations to come.

Our Corporate Partners

We are honored to have such incredible partners who believe in our mission at the Light Foundation. These partnerships help provide continuing support for our programs.


Renowned artist Brian Fox has joined us in a creative endeavor to offer exclusive, limited-edition prints of this original painting of Kevin Holland — the only publicly known operator who served in Naval Special Warfare Development Group (NSWDG) and the United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC).

This painting is the first piece to be released from the “Warrior Series”, which was launched at our 2021 Corporate Training Day event, held in conjunction with Sig Sauer.

There are only 9 prints available for purchase. Each ready-to-hang print is signed by Kevin Holland and Brian Fox. Proceeds benefit our mission along with HAVA Training.
