We All Have a Role to Play.
The “I Love U Guys” Foundation has never gone it alone. Serving first responders, administrators, and our community is the result of endless collaboration and partnerships. We all have a role to play. Together we’re a powerful conduit that unites this important work.
We will achieve our mission only with the help of others. Whether you’re a concerned parent, active community member, a school looking for a service project, a company involved in school safety, or a potential underwriter for our work we’re grateful you found us.

This map represents just a portion of the schools, districts, departments, agencies and organizations using our programs.
Support That Makes a National Impact.
Our programs are used in nearly 30,000 schools, districts, departments, agencies and organizations, serving and helping the lives of millions of students, adults, and first responders. And it doesn’t end there. We see our programs act as a catalyst within organizations and communities to do more. Helping to create safe schools and communities becomes tangible. Actionable. Achievable.
How We Do It
- Research the issues
- Identify the missing pieces
- Develop the programs
- Collaborate and refine
- Create educational materials
- Advocate the programs
- Deliver the programs at no cost
- Train kids, cops, and educators
We are dedicated to a sustainable, earned income business model. All our programs are available at no cost to anyone—we don’t even require an email address. We generate revenue through fees from various events:
We are often contacted for help with activities outside our mission. Site assessments, consulting, safety planning. These may be opportunities for us to find new partners, but we remain disciplined to our core mission and prefer to refer.
Our earned income business model helps us stay laser-focused as well. No energy is pulled from our work toward programs like donated cars, silent auctions, or product sales.
Evaluation: 50¢ = 28 + 3 + 1
We suggest GuideStar, Charity Navigator, and the BBB Wise Giving Alliance to evaluate non profit mission effectiveness. Much more than just overhead, effectiveness should be measured by transparency, governance, leadership, and results.
One metric that we’ve developed takes last year’s total revenue and applies it to the total number of schools and organizations that use our programs this year.
The result? Every 50¢ the Foundation received in 2017 impacted 28 kids, 3 educators and a cop.
The Foundation also provides Platte Canyon High School graduates with a supplemental scholarship. We’ve given over $60,000 to these remarkable students.
