"Changing Society Together"


Grassroots Change (GC) is a movement of the Gol Iluminado Foundation.  GC focuses on helping people become more successful and happy, which we call “the best you”.  Since people that feel better about themselves are more apt to treat others respectfully and be more cooperative, their influence on society is usually more positive.  As a result, tragedy is minimized due to less conflict and crime.  And top-down institutions from government to schools and parents operate more efficiently.  Hence, being “the best you”, helps society too: safety, efficiency, and relationship wise.  We also believe that the concept of GC is much bigger than any person or movement because we are all changing society together.  The “Founders Club” is the main tool we use to change society together.  It is based upon helping people and the community at the core foundation.  This includes empowering people to help make our community safer, be more respectful of one another, learn and grow, and have fun.  To accomplish these objectives, we have created lasting change programs, projects, and events like our Legacy Sports Park & Education Campus (aka: Passions for Hope Park) and our World Peace Day event on September 21.
