Goal Setting + Philanthropy

The Ideal Foundation

The Ideal Foundation is the philanthropic division of The Ideal Life, a growth-mindset organization, focused on the application of the I GOT This framework.

The Ideal Foundation’s I GOT This Grant was created by The Ideal Life to empower organizations to become deliberate in the practice of goal setting

10% of The Ideal Life’s revenue goes into The Ideal Foundation to provide grants and in-kind consulting to social good recipients in the community.

Our Desire

Partner with non-profits to help them in their deliberate practice of goal setting

Connecting Mission with Vision

Non-profit Leaders Know Purpose

The Ideal Foundation’s I GOT This Grant provides an opportunity for nonprofit executive team members to step outside the Tyranny of the Urgent for a day of in-kind consulting with our Ideal Team Coaches.

Coaches will walk the team through the process of defining goals, establishing objectives, and outlining a deliberate task that are all aligned with your organizational mission and vision.

The I GOT This Framework

The I GOT This Framework helps non-profits align their IDEALS, GOALS, OBJECTIVES, & a deliberate task around the 7 roles of an organization to discover a deep sense of purpose and joy at every stage.

work = operations


How you execute and deliver the mission

wealth = finance


The management and fiscal governance

family = people


Your organizational team members, community partnerships and the culture around both

community = social responsibility

Social Responsibility

The external impact of your mission, and the assessment of your impact.

health = sales / fundraising


Building relationships and generating revenue

wisdom = marketing


Sharing the story and narrative of your organization

faith = leadership


Empowerment and growth of the leadership team

Aligning Non-Profits

The I GOT This framework breaks down your non-profit’s ideal into more attainable goals, objectives, and tasks. In a similar fashion, we simplified the goal of obtaining the grant into smaller, and more concise steps!
