Paying it Forward
"In the order of nature we cannot render benefits to those from whom we receive them, or only seldom. But the benefit we receive must be rendered again, line for line,
deed for deed, cent for cent, to somebody."
– Ralph Waldo Emerson (1841)

The Luminous Endowment for Photographers is a charitable fund created by Michael Reichmann. The Endowment provides financial assistance through grants to deserving photographers and their projects – worldwide.
Michael Reichmann was the founder of the widely respected Luminous Landscape web site. Since its inception in 1999 LuLa has become the world's largest site devoted to the art, craft, and technology of photography. Each month more than one million people from every country on the globe visit LuLa.
Through The Luminous Endowment Michael has created a global community of those who can give, along with those who will benefit from the generosity of others. It is hoped that the worldwide community of photographers, corporations, and other supporters of the art and craft of photography, will participate in generously endowing and furthering the goals of The Luminous Endowment for Photographers.
