“Generosity is to live in a space of community, empathy, and service before self.”
The Inspire Up Foundation was launched in February of 2020 after the first GivingTuesdayMilitary campaign. We recognized the importance of inspiring kindness and good all year long, rather than just for a day. Our initiatives focus on supporting the military and first responder community while also standing in the gap for vulnerable communities where we can. We’ve supported thousands through our LoveMilKids hearts, Spark and Inspire Boxes, Impact Grants and pop up conferences. It is our hope to create a ripple of generosity that will carry far and wide throughout the world.
