We illuminate that every human being has inherent and equal worth.
We educate about culture-shaping issues. We motivate people to put truth and love into action.The Radiance Foundation is a faith-based, educational, life-affirming 501c3 nonprofit organization. Through creative ad campaigns, powerful multimedia presentations, fearless journalism, and compassionate community outreaches, The Radiance Foundation affirms that every human life has God-given purpose.
We’re not afraid to speak the truth that every human life, in and out of the womb, has purpose. We have the greatest (humanly unplanned) true story ever told in a courageous teen mother, a father who chose adoption over abandonment and a child who would become the Savior who changed everything.
We aren’t backed by big corporations…just big hearts. Individual donors, who are passionate about illuminating the truth that every human life has purpose, make our transformational #factivism possible. As a 501c3, life-affirming, non-profit organization. Through creative ad campaigns (like our latest WhatAbortionReallyIs.com billboard campaign), powerful multimedia live presentations, fearless journalism and compassionate community outreach, The Radiance Foundation addresses social issues in the context of God-given purpose. We’ve helped to lead congressional briefings/summits on Capitol Hill on abortion, adoption, and racism. We’ve spoken to thousands of students on campuses around the world including Harvard, Princeton University, University of Notre Dame, Mizzou, Columbia Law School, Penn State University, Eureka College (Ronald Reagan’s alma mater), Wheaton College, Arizona State University, Trinity College (home of world’s oldest Philosophical Society), University of Louisville, Portland State University and so many more.
We’ve helped to raise millions for pregnancy resource centers across the nation. We are passionate about creating content that affirms the dignity of human life and provides answers to the human condition.
Ryan has a rather unique perspective of the innate nature of Purpose. His biological mother was raped yet courageously gave him a chance to live and the beautiful gift of adoption. He was adopted at 6 weeks of age and grew up in a loving, multi-“racial” Christian family of 15. With siblings of varying ethnicities, he grew up with a great appreciation for diversity. Ten of the thirteen children were adopted in this remarkable family. His life defies the myth of the “unwanted” child as he was adopted, loved and has flourished.
Today, he is an Emmy® Award-winning Creative Professional who founded The Radiance Foundation (TRF), a life-affirming 501(c)(3), along with his wife, Bethany. He is a broadcast media designer, producer, columnist, passionate factivist, international public speaker and author of the powerful book, Not Equal: Civil Rights Gone Wrong.
Bethany Bomberger is the Co-Founder (along with her hubby) and Executive Director of The Radiance Foundation, a life-affirming organization that creatively illuminates that life has purpose. She is the author of the groundbreaking children’s book, PRO-LIFE KIDS!–an adorably illustrated children’s book that uses rhyme to teach an age-appropriate pro-life worldview.
Bethany has been an educator for two decades. She has taught in both public and private schools, working with thousands of children, youth and adults of all ages. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and Family Studies from Messiah College and a Master’s Degree in Education from Regent University, Bethany has spearheaded innovative educational programs in her classrooms and the communities where she has lived. From talent shows to benefit concerts, scholarship programs to children’s camps, she has organized many successful endeavors.

Bethany’s teaching career has taken her to four states and six different grade levels. She has been a lead teacher for special needs inclusion and gifted classes. She has mentored hundreds of students and numerous teachers and felt great satisfaction in knowing that others looked to her for affirmation and guidance.
