Mission Statement

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

We host public events, performances, and provide community awareness through education in science and arts. Through our micro-grant funding system, we’re able to have broad outreach and close funding gaps endemic in education.


“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)
