Our Mission

The Lucosky Brookman Foundation uses the power of philanthropy to impact the lives of those less fortunate with a particular focus on children’s causes. The Foundation educates individuals and brings awareness to various sponsored initiatives that make a profound difference in children’s lives. Whether it is a one-night event, an ongoing outreach effort or a single donation, the Lucosky Brookman Foundation is committed to making an impact.

Current Initiatives


Save a Child's Heart

Save a Child's Heart
We Believe
That all children, regardless of race, religion, sex, color or financial status deserve to receive the best possible care that medicine has to offer.

Save A Child’s Heart (SACH) is one of the largest philanthropic undertakings in the world, providing urgently needed pediatric heart surgery and follow-up care for indigent children from developing countries. Based in Israel, SACH’s mission is to improve the quality of pediatric cardiac care for children from countries where the heart surgery they need is unobtainable.

CF Bane

CF Bane
We Believe
That cystic fibrosis can be cured, and that through our fight to raise awareness and assist in funding the research necessary to find a cure, that we can play a small part in improving the lives of those living with this terrible disease.

The CF Bane campaign is a unique Lucosky Brookman Foundation initiative designed to create and raise additional awareness about the effects of Cystic Fibrosis (“CF”). CF is a life-threatening genetic disorder that damages the lungs and digestive system, often times making it difficult to breathe. Richard M. Canto, also known as “CF Bane”, and his ever growing army, through the help of the Lucosky Brookman Foundation, participate in various obstacle course races and other athletic events while wearing a “bane mask” in an effort to illustrate some of the breathing challenges people living with CF face when participating in both everyday life and athletic activities. The mask serves as a reminder as it inhibits oxygen from entering the lungs which is the leading symptom of CF. CF Bane’s mission is to raise an army of supporters, “CF Bane’s Army”, to heighten awareness and most importantly, assist in raising the funds necessary to eliminate CF.

Knock Knock Give a Sock

Knock Knock Give a Sock
We Believe
That we can bring together our communities, by engaging businesses and schools across the country and helping to organize a collective that will eventually lead to a large coordinated effort to clothe homeless people.

Knock Knock Give A Sock (“KKGS”) is a unique initiative adopted by the Lucosky Brookman Foundation and dedicated to fulfilling one of the most basic human needs of those experiencing homelessness in our communities. Adina Lichtman, KKGS Founder, discovered the significance of something as simple as a pair of socks during a chance encounter with a homeless man on a cold November night. The man requested a warm pair of socks as an alternative to the sandwich being offered. Socks are the single most in demand item needed by the homeless, yet are among the most under-donated article of clothing. KKGS donates socks to homeless shelters in various cities across the country. The Lucosky Brookman Foundation recognizes that even minor acts of kindness, such as donating a pair of socks, can make a tremendous impact on someone’s life and the community.

The Lucosky Brookman Foundation recognizes that there are many wonderful causes worthy of donations of time and money.  We seek to partner with our donors to help identify those charities that fall within our mission statement and allocate as much time and resources to these other initiatives as possible.
