About Luke


LUKE Foundation is an independent, educational, grassroots, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the entrepreneurial and educational resources of our youth. Our main vehicles are Conferences designed to promote and maximize opportunities for students in their home communities. In 2023, our concentration shifts to advancing inclusive opportunities related to the Space Economy that expand the horizons of our students and community and support Maryland-based Space industries.



LUKE Foundation’s mission is to enhance the educational opportunities for students through partnerships with educators, parents business and the greater community.  Our 21st Century emphasis is on integrating our workforce into the Space Economy for the dramatic betterment of our communities.

We believe it's important to "engage" people of all ages within the communities we live in order to improve the quality of life for everyone. We believe that the values and commitments of the future leaders of our society start at the grassroots level.



Our vision is of a new world of learning that incorporates, serves and benefits from the vast resources of the Space Economy; a place where students and parents, teachers, administrators, policy makers and the people they serve, are all empowered to change education for the better; a place where schools provide rigorous project-based learning, social-emotional learning, and access to new technology; a place where innovation is the rule, not the exception; a place where students become lifelong learners and develop 21st century skills; are exposed to and understand the wealth of possibility available through the Space Economy related industries.
