Mission Statement

To preserve dignity, enable independence and build community by providing eco-friendly essential lawn service for the elderly, veterans and others in need.

Description

Launched in 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, I Want To Mow Your Lawn (r) , a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (Tax ID: 853447661), offers completely free lawn care to seniors over 65, military veterans, the disabled, and those facing financial challenges - all while prioritizing eco-friendly practices. Founder Brian Schwartz, who was laid off from his digital advertising job, saw it as a chance to make a difference when the world felt chaotic.

As time progressed, the demand surged, and a growing number of volunteers joined Brian's mission. Currently, over 340 volunteers across 40 states have revitalized more than 500 yards. For those receiving assistance from I Want To Mow Your Lawn(tm), the grass might not always be greener, but it's neatly trimmed, edged, and raked.

Global media coverage has led to an impressive six-fold increase in volunteer sign-ups for the upcoming 2023 spring-summer season.
