SPACE ECONOMY AND CULTURAL ADVANCEMENT
One of the key outcomes in starting the Foundation was to impact economic development in the communities in which the Foundation is active. On behalf of the Foundation’s communities and constituency, we will interact with leading government and scientific institutions to give voice and input into policies, regulations, and priorities regarding the space program developed by government and military organizations with the participation of private space businesses. As an example, the Foundation recently held a community meeting in which we encouraged the people to contact the Department of Defense to select Vandenberg Air Force Base (one of six contenders) as the Space Force Command Headquarters. This would greatly increase the local economic outlook by assisting in the development of complementary space activities in the surrounding area.
Participation in space initiatives under NASA, UCLA, and other public and private organizations, are a priority. Under our entrepreneurship development program, local communities will benefit from the promotion, development, and utilization of NASA intellectual properties in space start-ups through commercialization. Our knowledge and keen understanding of corporations and individuals across multiple industries – space, technology, media, and entertainment – will enable us to successfully support these startups. NASA, our national space program, and the Department of Defense could also be beneficiaries from the startups.

The development and implementation of new innovative methods of philanthropy and fundraising are crucial to boost interest and support for the broadening and re-emerging space program. The Foundation will employ accepting cryptocurrency donations as a new and exciting fundraising strategy. Media and public and private events, like concerts and films, will also be used both to fund and accomplish our mission of advancing the space ecosystem. In addition, the local communities and counties will benefit from increased tourism and investments from space events.
The Foundation will bring the attention of external investors into the local communities by launching TV programs, inviting people of influence to the communities, and providing local activities and events.
The mentoring of young adults in entrepreneurship, as well as opportunities for the development of the professional skills needed for meaningful jobs in space, fashion, and media, will accomplish economic and cultural benefit for our local communities, nationally, globally, and most importantly, for the individuals themselves.
Promotion, funds acquisition, and relationship building have included participation in events in Los Angeles, Silicon Valley, Lithuania, and Poland. These opportunities open doors to promote our Foundation mission and increase exposure to potential donors and supporters.
We continue to attend NASA training and media events to help stay abreast of space news and activities and to learn how we can assist in the furtherance of our national space program.
The Foundation has already developed plans and relationships to create Lady Rocket Space Concerts integrating Vandenberg Air Force Base rocket launches and events, assisting in the economic development of complementary space activities in the surrounding area.
The Foundation has been collaborating with producers of Clout - new influential music and fashion festival in Poland scheduled for July 15-16, 2020.
Unfortunately, this US-Poland concert for Sustainability on Planet Earth and Space will probably be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lady Rocket Foundation produces two half-hour cable TV programs each month. Space News and Entertainment and Lady Rocket Foundation Presents.
These and additional economic and cultural activities are designed to create a greater passion and awareness of how space is becoming more relevant in our lives and how our future can be improved through the proper development of our space ecosystem.
These program activities have been paid for by the Board of Directors, an international donor, and in-kind contributions. Grant funds, individual and corporate donations and sponsorships are anticipated to fund future activities.
