About Us

THE ARI ARTEAGA FOUNDATION - BE THE LIGHT® was established to spread the giving spirit of Ari Arteaga by inspiring others to help those in need. We are committed to engaging the community in offering philanthropic support for the present and future needs of individuals encountering life-changing challenges due to medical or financial difficulties, caused by unforeseen tragic circumstances. The goal of the Foundation is to help those whom are in need of support, financially and emotionally, for their medical conditions. The Foundation has also formed the Be the Light Scholarship® to help qualified students in underprivileged economic circumstances to achieve their academic dreams.
