Ignited by Purpose: The Driving Force of Lite Raise

Marc's anonymous $16,000 gift

In 2009, our founder, Marc Alexander, was gifted with an anonymous $16,000 to pay for his last year of college with the one request that he "Pay This Gift Forward." That would be the spark to create a business to help millions around the world.
