The BNI Foundation has been serving children and education since 1998.

The BNI Foundation is helping to change lives by improving circumstances for children facing financial instability that negatively affect their educational opportunities. We support initiatives that provide resources to educators and organizations that make success easier for kids, either by removing barriers or by providing incentives for focusing on studies. For us, the mechanism to help with this shift is investing our time, treasure, and talent to assist in education where we can. We do this through our Business Voices™ Initiative and our Givers Gain® Grant Program.

Testimonials

After I graduated from college, I looked for a company that not only provided a high quality service or product, but cared about making a difference in the community. So, when I found out that BNI operated a non-profit, the BNI Foundation, it immediately caught my attention! One of the reasons I joined BNI was because of the BNI Foundation. I hope to use the program to positively affect our community and grow our region!

As a nonprofit executive, I have always wholeheartedly believed that helping others enables one to be helped in return, so when I learned that this notion is embodied as the Givers Gain core philosophy of BNI I was intrigued.  Being a BNI member has been an unbelievable resource for myself and my nonprofit organization - not only has it helped grow my nonprofit business through outreach and increased financial donations to my organization, but I have been able to learn from the extensive network of experienced business professionals in my now greatly expanded network of BNI members.  Thank you to BNI for creating such a welcoming and effective space to make business happen, not just for for-profit companies, but also for nonprofits as well.
