The Palm Beach Chapter began in the fall of 2009 as a group of friends that wanted to make an impact on their community. In 6 years, we raised over $30,000 by hosting a series of fundraising events to provide assistance to individuals in our local community who are having difficulties in life. Our recipients come from our network of friends and have found themselves in need, be it from illness, natural disaster, poverty or just simply bad luck, yet have also demonstrated generosity, courage and commitment to charitable causes within the community. We have also partnered with local non-profits such as Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse and Extended Hands Community Outreach to allow our impact to grow beyond individuals, and to benefit other organizations who strive to improve our community. Our hope is that support from Betterment will be a gift that keeps on giving -recipients who continue to positively impact those around them.
