About the Luce Initiative

The Luce Initiative

The Luce Initiative is a volunteer, not-for-profit organization committed to accelerating the growth of early stage programs that provide critical mental health support services to individuals and families in immediate need.

Our Mission 

To improve the lives of individuals and families in immediate need, we fund early-stage programs that seek to meaningfully address the gaps in our current mental health care system.

We engage a vibrant and committed donor network who share our bias for action and desire to support our community.

Through our volunteer organization, we raise funds with the commitment to maximizing the contribution directed to the programs we support.

We're Meeting a Real Need Now

The Origin of Our Name

In Italian, 'luce' (pronounced loo-chā) means 'light'.

Through our fundraising, the Luce Initiative is able to help increase access to mental health support services for individuals and families helping them move into the light of a brighter future.

More Help Now

To date, we have raised over $350,000 in support of the Family Navigation Project at Sunnybrook, a non-profit, philanthropically funded program that provides help to youth, 13 to 26 years old, experiencing mental health and/or addiction issues, and their families.
