The Foundation for Community Betterment is a network of generous individuals who believe a simple gesture that touches just one life can positively impact an entire community. As our logo symbolizes, our hope is that our simple actions can create a ripple effect of goodness through the actions of the recipients we support.
We are a national non-profit 501(c) (3) organization founded in 2000 by eight young professionals who wanted to "better" their communities by making an immediate impact in the lives of individuals and organizations in need. At our core, we are volunteer-driven and continue to be run at the national level by the majority of our original founders. Since our inception in 2000, we have expanded to include active chapters and host committees in several U.S. cities including: Alexandria Bay, NY; Annapolis, MD; Binghamton, NY; Canton, OH; Chicago, IL; Cleveland, OH; Virginia Beach, VA; and Washington, DC.
