Give Light to Lumen

Organized by: The Lumen

Four women - Saman, Somayyah, Iman, and Farrah - are casting light on social causes.

Lumen, which means "measurable light", will serve as a conduit for fundraising and awareness for local Northern Virginia social services which provide aid to domestic violence prevention, educational assistance, and food security organizations. Through Lumen, we intend to engage a network of (enlightened) conscious leaders, business owners, artists, change makers who will invest in their community.

Why Lumen Needs You

To receive legal 501(3)(c) status and serve our partners, Lumen must file necessary paperwork recognizing our non-profit status. Filing this paperwork comes with many associated fees. Our fundraiser intends to raise the costs associated with filing for 501(3)(c)

Where Your Funds Will Go

$75 - Filing the XXX Form, which will grant an Employee Identification Number (EIN)



Your donations will enable Lumen to file the paperwork necessary to receive legal status to put on events, conduct fundraisers, and engage with our partners to spread light in our community.


What Sparked Lumen

Saman, Somayyah, Iman, and Farrah. How did four women, of diverse backgrounds, life goals, upbringings, talents, careers, and interests, come together? Simply - through a mission.

Four powerhouse women executed a first-ever night of fashion and beauty in October 2014, raising over $10,000 in support of domestic violence victims and spreading awareness on the prevalence of DV issues within their community. In September 2015, these women carried out another night of DV awareness, topping their fundraising from the previous year.

These women now are founding Lumen, an organization which will create opportunities to illuminate local causes that will create a model of sustainable empowerment.
