A little about The Leader Light Foundation:

The Leader Light Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the memory of Nicholas Rauser.
The Leader Light Foundation grants annual scholarships to graduating seniors in local area schools.
We wish to sponsor students that have proven to be not only good athletes, but caring teammates, good citizens and good friends.
The Leader Light Foundation wishes to help local area baseball programs. This will be achieved through team sponsorship, equipment donations and player sponsorship.

How they have helped.
The Leader Light Foundation is proud to be the sponser of six local baseball teams for the 2010 summer season.
This year thirteen $1,000 college scholarships were awarded to graduating seniors at six local area high schools.
In 2009, three scholarships were awarded.

Why it was created:

In memory of Nicholas Charles Rauser. On December 21, 2008 Nicholas was the lone fatality in a car accident on Brookpark Road in North Olmsted Ohio. Nicholas was just 15 years old. He was memorialized on Christmas Eve by over 1,500 family, friends, teachers, classmates, coaches and all those he ever touched. The overwhelming show of support was a testament to what a caring, loving young man Nicholas was.
He will always be remembered by his smile, sense of humor, good nature and love of sports.
