Leveraging Philanthropy and Collaboration

The Lodestar Foundation seeks to expand the overall capacity of the social sector by promoting philanthropy, volunteering, public service, nonprofit collaboration and other business practices.

Media Campaign for Volunteers

Lodestar, Cox Communications and Clear Channel Communications joined forces in an effort to enlist more male “Big Brothers” to mentor young boys. During the fall football season in 2006 and 2007, the three entities underwrote an intensive TV and radio ad campaign promoting the "Big Brothers" concept, which increased the number of male inquiries to the organization. Beyond that, Lodestar also supported "Big Brothers" in other aspects of their organization.
