Gather Up Your Ideas!

August 15, 2018

Have you wanted to start a community garden with your Young Women or Young Men? Or is there a site in your ward neighborhood that needs some care? Perhaps you have a family reunion service project in mind? We would love to help facilitate a project that would improve the environment in your local area.

LDS Earth Stewardship is excited to announce the Par Rasmusson LDS (“Let’s Do Service!”) mini-grant. The grant provides $100 -$500 for your church, university, or family to clean up a neighborhood, beautify a park, or survey wildlife with an emphasis on discussing the faith-based principles of earth stewardship. There will be a simple application process with submission of photos and stories upon completion of the project.

If you’re interested, email to be notified when applications go live.

Let us tell you a little about Par Rasmusson!

Par y saw de ROMO 768x512Par Rasmusson has been a member of LDS Earth Stewardship since it’s founding, and is a member of our Board of Directors. Par is is passionate about service, especially environmental service. He has led numerous projects in places such as Glacier, Zion, Death Valley, Rocky Mountain, and Great Smoky National Parks and served as the coordinator of our very successful Adopt-A-Shoreline cleanup of Sandy Beach on Utah Lake. 

Par is often heard encouraging others with a modification of the LDS acronym as “Let’s Do Service!” His commitment to earth stewardship, his unwavering faith in the gospel, and his exuberance for life are the reasons why we designate these mini-grants in his name.
