kids walking to school hands

Let’s get there together.


The size of the Foundation compared to our impact footprint isn’t an illusion. It’s a collaboration. It’s our Force Multipliers—influencers, decision makers, kind hearted-givers—that make us effective. (You can read all about how, and how well, we do what we do here.)

We also work with influential umbrella organizations, state and national training organizations and associations, insurance pools, municipalities, school safety centers, and State Departments of Education.

And now, we hope, you.

The “I Love U Guys” Foundation is investing in programs across the spectrum of school climate, culture, response and recovery. Initiative underwriting funds the research and development for our future.

Funding a new initiative affords partners “Grandfather” status: All resulting materials, programs, and curriculum acknowledge the underwriting partner.

In 2019, the Foundation began work on two new Initiatives: The Aftermath Project and Bold Impact. We have seeded funds. You can help bring them to fruition.

Journalists Capturing the Stories. Survivors Crafting Advice.

Aftermath Project LogoThe Aftermath objective is to provide pragmatic, compassionate, and proven guidance on how to move through the recovery process after school violence events with kindness and fortitude.



What If I Told You We Can Stop School Attacks?

Bold Impact Logo

There’s research that shows us how to stop the violence before it begins, and programs that show us the path. BOLD people and organizations are 
working collectively to get it done.

Our Individual Contributors are individuals wanting to take an active role in improving school safety by financially supporting the broad mission of The “I Love U Guys” Foundation. Employers often kick in a little too through workplace giving programs.

Student and School

The “I Love U Guys” Foundation is an excellent option for community service projects. Relevant and tangible, students feel the importance, resulting in stronger learning. Penny drives, Facebook fundraisers, or ongoing programs like Columbine High School’s Student Senate that contributes annually in connection with an event all have an impact.


Non partisan, and a-political, The “I Love U Guys” Foundation is an excellent choice for corporations seeking ways to build community and demonstrate true support of their employees’ families.

Monthly Gifts

$5/month impacts over 500 students, a dozen educators and a couple of cops every year. $50/month impacts even more.

Onetime Gifts

Curriculum Adopters work with The “I Love U Guys” Foundation to customize programs, trainings, and materials for a specific use in a community. This is a high-touch, customized partnership. 

For instance, the Foundation has worked with school district self insurance pools in Texas, Oregon, and Colorado. We start by customizing materials to fit their audience or membership. In Texas, we included statute and how Foundation programs fit. In Oregon, appropriate policy, developed by OSBA, was included.

The Texas School Safety Center is another example. TxSSC incorporated these materials into online toolkits. Importantly, materials are also co-branded. But this is just one part of our Curriculum Adoption program. We also develop train the trainer materials.

Historically, the Foundation has worked with these umbrella organizations to both create then deliver the programs through training and outreach. Often, a second or sometimes third year of training before going to the next curriculum evolution.
