About Points of Light
Our Mission & Vision
The Points of Light mission is to inspire, equip and mobilize people to take action that changes the world. We envision a world in which everyone discovers the power to make a difference, creating healthy communities in vibrant, participatory societies.
We envision a society where it is easy for every person to drive change in their community, and in the world. We will be a cultural catalyst, working in partnership with organizations and individuals to build a society where it is impossible to sit on the sidelines. We’ll define a new kind of volunteerism for the 21st century, one that calls on people to give their time, talents, voice and resources in service to build a brighter future for all.
