Mission Statement:

  Interested in supporting community development? Your wedding donations to this fund will be distributed by I Do Foundation to organizations that are building communities, in the United States and abroad, that provide their residents with the economic opportunity to support themselves and live stable, healthy lives.

In Their Own Words:

  One of the greatest challenges of our age is to bridge the gap between the presence of incredible wealth for the few and abject poverty for the many. In the United States, one in five children goes hungry. Internationally, 1.2 billion people live on less than $1 a day. The human results of these cold statistics are crushing; whole communities survive at a subsistence level; entire towns and cities have little sense of a future.

In response to these challenges, I Do Foundation supports organizations that attack the multidimensional causes of poverty in order to strengthen communities. The organizations supported under this focus area leverage internal and external resources to bring greater financial and social capital to low-income and underserved populations. For example, the Foundation supports programs that develop jobs, spur commercial activity, and create micro lending programs. In addition to strengthening the financial base of communities, the Foundation also supports programs that address one of the most basic facets of community life: homelessness and housing. While recognizing the power of grassroots community development efforts, the Foundation also supports policy advocates working for fiscal reforms that strengthen the ability of disadvantaged communities to support and sustain themselves.
