community betterment - a social network with a social conscience

1 in 10:  The Power of You to the Power of Ten

This year, we are celebrating our 10th Anniversary!  To celebrate this important milestone, we kicked off our  One in Ten: The Power of You to the Power of Ten campaign in September 2008. We look forward to taking Betterment to the next level of professionalism, commitment, and outreach by joining together members of our national network of supporters and members of our current chapters in Alexandria Bay, NY; Buffalo, NY; Canton, OH; Chicago, IL; Cleveland, OH; Palm Beach County, FL and Washington, DC.  

In order to support the hundreds of volunteers in our chapter cities and help a growing number of individuals and organizations through our Immediate Need Fund, it is critical that we strengthen our infrastructure.  As we work to expand our efforts, donations to Betterment are an investment in the communities and lives of every recipient we will serve for generations to come.

The Founders’ Circle is comprised of donors who give $5,000 or more to our 1 in 10 campaign.  This group has already played a significant role in our ability to create and fulfill our mission, and now they will lead the way to our future.  Throughout the next several years we will include and recognize this important group in many of our events and campaign activities.  For more information on how to join the Founders’ Circle, please contact Shannon Curley at or 202-263-2586.
