Our Mission

The Lingzi Foundation honors the example set by Lingzi Lu, who spread love and compassion while fearlessly following her dreams, by providing educational opportunities for courageous and ambitious students like her; and supporting organizations that reflect her passions and recognize those making a positive impact toward building bridges between cultures and communities.


ABOUT THE LINGZI FOUNDATION

The Lingzi Foundation is a not-for-profit organization based in Boston Massachusetts formed by the family of Lu Lingzi, who perished during the Boston Marathon bombing attack, to preserve and perpetuate Lingzi’s life example.  The Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) organization incorporated in the State of Massachusetts.  The Foundation provides opportunities to those who share Lingzi’s ambition and dreams to enrich their lives, open their minds and break down barriers by learning from her positive spirit, unparalleled work ethic, perseverance and humanism. Lingzi lived life fully with joy by appreciating family and friends, food and its ability to bring people together and the beauty of the environment around her. The Foundation seeks to identify and partner with organizations that share these passions and support their inspirational initiatives.
