By inspiring BNI members and the general public to offer support at a local level, the BNI Foundation promotes change where it is needed most.

Who is the BNI Foundation?

When corporations have a vision bigger than their profit and loss statement, amazing things can happen. BNI, the world’s leading referral organization, is one such corporation. Started by Ivan and Beth Misner in 1998, the BNI Foundation has been supporting children and education in the United States and around the world by mobilizing resources to give kids everywhere a quality education. The focus of the BNI Foundation is to change the trajectory of the youth of our community and help them find the path to productive and successful lives. For us, the mechanism to help with this shift is by investing our time, treasure, and talent to assist in education where we can.

The BNI Foundation filed for its 501(c)3, non-profit status with the IRS and was approved as a private foundation, effective date January 6, 2016.
