WHO WE ARE
Founded in 2017, Pure Light Foundation received prompt IRS approval as an acceptable 501(c)3, non-profit organization. Our charter is to promote the arts for positive messaging and the development of artistic education and creative performance through the generous donations of patrons that want to exert positive impact in a contentious and turbulent world. All God's Children falls within that approved charter and is the first of several movie and book projects to be in production within the next several years.
The Founders, Dana and Linda Hansen, are long time art patrons and have been involved in Cleveland, Chicago, Denver and LA faith-community development, the Parliament of the World's Religion, the West LA Interfaith Council, Family Time Foundation (which they founded in Denver following the Columbine High School massacre) and the enormously popular Annual St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Parish/Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints interfaith/intercultural Christmas concert held in Beverly Hills. Linda received her PhD from the renowned Iliff School of Theology (a joint program through the University of Denver) and is currently authoring two books.
The story of Ed and Wanda Willis moved the Hansens, which prompted an in-depth search for a team of artists, motion picture producers, historians and apologists to create a broad story in cinematic form of the African LDS member contributions to the Faith. Careful consideration and inclusion of advisors and authentic musicians provide unique texture to the dramatic nature of the movie, and enhances its accuracy and contextual framework to a topic that is, at once, timely and sensitive in today's tense political and racial climate.
Pure Light Foundation's board of directors are made up of men and women of various ethnicities and backgrounds, all focused on ensuring that the IRS-approved charter is maintained and in good standing. We are approved to raise funds in the key states of Utah and California and happy to provide as part of this packet our FEIN, a copy of the signed IRS approval letter authorizing us to proceed as chartered, and approval letters from the States of Utah and California as fund raisers.
We feel it is our duty to use all donations as sacred funds and are compelled to generate worthy media for generations to come in order to bring light to the world that is ensconced in darkness.
There are simply too many powerful stories that need to be told, filmed and recorded; our mission is to do all we must to bring as many to light as we possibly can.
“Everything that is done in the world is done by hope”
