 The Indigenous Copa Americana and Copa America



The Gol Iluminado Foundation has been involved in numerous Charity and Goodwill Events since its formation in 2007. All of the initaitives, events and activities that we organize are created for the purpose of providing resources in order to implement and sustain Goodwill Legacy Programs for children and families in need and at risk. Our Foundation is driven by the passion and vision of our Chairman, 'Don' Elias Figueroa and of our President, Steve Leighton, both of whom have dedicated themselves to the LEGACY of utilizing SPORT as a vehicle to promote Education, Peace and Hope.

In 2015 Chile played host to the Inaugural Indigenous Copa Americana, the U-17 FIFA World Cup, the 99th Anniversary version of the Copa America, which Chile became Champions for the first time and the OUR OCEAN Global Environmental Conference. It was a remarkable opportunity for Sponsors and Donors to leverage the VISION and hard work of the Gol Iluminado Foundation and the gravitas of Chilean Legend Elias Figueroa.
