Our Impact

Bringing Possibilities to Life

Our dedication to amplifying the reach and impact of our mission inspires us to enrich lives, strengthen communities and support others.  To learn more, download our Impact Report.

Better people. Braver leaders. Wiser world.

Over the years, Luck Companies’ message and VBL work has reached thousands of individuals and organizations. Recognizing our opportunity to share this life-changing work with others inspired us to establish a non-profit leadership institute. In 2015, in collaboration with a community of VBL practitioners, we launched InnerWill to pursue a mission to develop better people, braver leaders, and a wiser world. InnerWill uses Values Based Leadership to teach, coach and support the development of those interested in transforming both their life and the lives of others.

Working with the Community

Our commitment to the communities we serve is deep and extensive.

We study, explore, and learn about the communities we enter to understand their past and imagine the possibilities for the future. We engage and partner with community leadership, government and institutions to turn visions into collaborative realities.

Whether we’re working on a new bridge project or one of Virginia’s many highways, we take a long-term approach to our business to ensure that the community benefits from our work for decades to come. 

Additionally, each year, we provide sponsorships and product donations to our communities. We take pride in the role we play to help build and sustain the infrastructure of a healthy society and the people who live in it.

 The Luck Companies Foundation 

We support our associates and the organizations that mean the most to them by matching donations from associate giving. In addition, the Luck Companies Foundation offers grants and charitable donations to purpose-driven organizations.

The Luck Companies Foundation also partners with non-profits to lead work that results in long-term, positive outcomes for our local communities. We focus in two main areas — Values Based Leadership and Environmental Stewardship. 

Ways We Give Back

Learning from our own journey, we founded InnerWill to broaden the reach and impact of our mission. A nonprofit leadership institute and consulting organization, InnerWill provides research, support and thought leadership to create better people, braver leaders and a wiser world.

Apply For a Grant

THE FIRST STEP: Please complete and submit a "Request for Funding" form by clicking the “Apply For Grant” button below. The request should succinctly describe your organization and the proposed project, with an explanation of its relevance to specific Foundation areas of focus. Please also include an estimate of the funds being requested. Applications that do not address a specific topic within our areas of focus will not be reviewed.

All specifications in the "Request for Funding" form must be met in order for us to review your request.

HOW IT WORKS: The Foundation receives many more grant requests than it can fund. Submitting a formal grant request does not mean that funding will be approved.

We will review requests four times a year, and preference will be given to those that affect our areas of primary emphasis - Values Based Leadership and Environmental Stewardship. Long-term positive impact on the communities in which we operate is a critical to our consideration of each grant request. We also expect recipients to provide an annual report on long-term impact and project effectiveness.
