Founder of I Do Foundation with Bethany Robertson
Lawrence Miller 2002 Fellow
Empower engaged couples to unite the joy and wealth of wedding celebrations with effective nonprofit organizations.
The I Do Foundation helps engaged couples bring a charitable focus to their marriage by uniting the joy and wealth of wedding celebrations with effective nonprofit organizations. The I Do Foundation’s recommended nonprofit partners include education programs, family empowerment projects, community development work, civil and human rights initiatives, health promotion efforts, and environmental protection programs. The I Do Foundation has made a special commitment to support organizations working for low-income and underserved populations. In addition to its recommended partners, the I Do Foundation also donates to organizations suggested by its couples. The I Do Foundation invites every engaged couple to share their celebration with a broader community. By adding a charitable element to their wedding, engaged couples can affirm their commitment as a family to a lifetime of community involvement.
