The mission of Spring Oath is to maximize community assets through philanthropic strategies.
Spring Oath’s vision is to create a localized, understood and visible system of support in our American neighborhoods by using philanthropic strategies. Through comprehensive plans of action, programs, and collaborations, this institution provides services which can assist in daily living, education, personal and professional development, advocacy, and business development.
Many people in our communities do not feel like they are supported or that there are people out there who are willing to help them. In many cases resources are available, but people don’t know where to go. In the instances where they do know where to go, they are afraid of being judged or of making a bad situation worse from a bad experience or an unintended consequence.
Our job is to bridge the disconnect between community and community organizations. We gather, strategize, and package community resources in a way that is consumable and accessible to the common person so that neighborhood support can be felt, safe to use, understood, utilized, and impactful. We call this “maximizing Community Resources”.
Spring Oath Help Institute is an institution designed to create innovative and strategic ways to help the common person via programs, events, scholarship, grants, research and networking.
We are successful when at least 70% of individuals within the set community we serve, knows at least 2 to 3 people on their street who are knowledgeable about local assets, how to get involved with, contribute or to receive assistance from those assets and be able to assist them in creating a 3 month to a 5 year plan for well-rounded growth.
Philanthropy, according to Peyton's definition in 1988, means voluntary action for the public good.
Outside of the government, private actors contributing time, talent, and treasure has kept America and our Indiana Hoosiers safe, supported, and spoken for. We believe that it was not one form of philanthropy that has led to this outcome, rather a combination of all kinds of philanthropic activities, causes, and initiatives to support our diverse people.
Spring Oath intends to operate in almost all philanthropic capacities, from leadership decision, to comprehensive plans of action, to impact our American families and communities on a local and individual basis.
