Welcome to The Luminary and Co. Donation Page!

We're not just a candle company; we're a group of people who share a love for community, inspiration, and good vibes. We’ve been through some rough times ourselves and believe in giving back to the city that embraced us, the people who motivate us, and the causes that uplift us.

When you buy one of our candles, you're not just illuminating your home but also helping to spark a sense of local and global community spirit. We give regularly to the groups below and encourage our friends to do the same.

We're excited to join forces with you and positively impact the world.

With gratitude and warmth,
Stephanie & The Luminary and Co. Team

The Roots of Music

Founded by Grammy-winning Derrick Tabb after Hurricane Katrina, The Roots of Music is a testament to New Orleans' resilience. It provides music education and support services to the city's youth. With programs like Sprouts of Music for ages 5-8, the Marching Crusaders Band for 9-14, and The Roots Studio Academy for 15-19 year-olds, the organization has evolved from a small drum camp to a significant cultural force, upholding music as a vital lifeline for the community.


NAMI New Orleans

NAMI New Orleans, part of the National Alliance on Mental Illness network, serves as a pillar of support for around 75,000 individuals and their families affected by mental illness across four parishes. It offers critical resources, including education, advocacy, and psychosocial services, aimed at fostering dignity, independence, and a deeper public understanding of mental health challenges.


Red Beans Parade (Feed The Second Line)

The initiative supports New Orleans' cultural heritage by providing groceries for elder culture-bearers and gig work for musicians and younger culture custodians. This effort has generated job opportunities valued at over $300,000 and has contributed over $168,000 in grocery aid to sustain the city's cultural contributors.


Tepesua CBO

Tepesua Community Based Organization, founded by Hellen Nkuraiya in 2015 near Narok, Kenya, advances education and women's empowerment. The organization runs schools, a cultural eco camp, and support for widows, focusing on sustainable skills like beadwork and farming. Tepesua combats gender-based injustices like early marriage and FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), meriting support for its transformative community work.
