 There are several ways that you can contribute to The Langland Family Be A Light Foundation.




  1. Volunteer:   The Be A Light Dance Gathering is an annual event run by the  Liberty High School Dance Team.   There will be a variety of volunteer options to make that competition run and flow smoothly.                                                  
  2.  Fund-raise for the foundation (focused on the State of Iowa).   You can raise funds on social media by utilizing the links below.  You can also utilize the QR code at the bottom of this page to direct people to our PayPal donation site or to venmo.  You can also use this link if needed:  Feel free to have a mini fundraiser for your birthday or other activities.   You can also join in on the annual fundraiser between Thanksgiving and Brooke's birthday in December. Unfortunately, the fundraising tools of Facebook and Instagram are no longer available to us.  We are also registered with Tiltify if you would like to make your own fundraiser or team fundraiser.
  3.  Contribute to the foundation fund (focused on the State of Iowa).   Our goal is to build up a large endowment fund that we can invest in perpetuity.  Something that will outlast us all.   We plan to invest the endowment fund so that it will grow bigger each year (dependent upon the financial market). The bigger the endowment fund becomes, the more investment income we will have to donate in Brooke's name each year.  The more we invest over time, the more we will do in honor of Brooke.

    Consider a matching gift from your business if they allow gifts to private non-operating foundations.

    If you would like to donate and obtain a possible tax deduction, the most cost efficient way is to send a check to:
