Mission Statement

The Samuel Lawrence Foundation strives to promote human interaction in communities encouraging broader access to art, culture, science and medicine.

We fund art, music, science which serve to solve global problems ‘outside the box.’ To that end, we host public events and performances, and provide the community awareness through education in science, arts, and culture.


“What matters is flexibility for each unique situation, and adapting to opposing¬† forces. Means of change often point in multiple directions.¬† Advocacy work is characterized by its ability to adapt to dynamic conditions.” (Teles and Schmitt, ’11)
