Framing Our Mission
The solution to each problem that confronts us begins with an individual who says, "I can help."
At Points of Light, we believe that we are at the dawn of a “Civic Century,” an age when people become the driving force that transforms our world. We believe when future generations look back on this time, they will see it was an era of sustained, meaningful civic engagement. In order to do this, they need a system for changing systems. Points of Light's Civic Circle provides the roadmap to create meaningful, lasting change for causes you care about.
We're creating connections between nonprofits, corporations and individuals, so that together we can address the world’s changing needs.
Our global community is providing more invitations to act, so that civic life can be activated at work, online, in stores, on the ground and via donations.
We must advocate for more integrated societal norms, policies and infrastructure that support each individual’s ability to do good.
