About the Program

Since 2013, Be The Change Foundation has fundraised close to USD $60,000 through its crowdfunding-like platform for local non-profit organizations and youth seeking grants to further their educational careers. Each year we put out a call to be featured as a “Spotlight Project of the Month” where funds donated to us during the course of that month, be donated to the chosen featured non-profit for a specific project they need funds for. Donations can vary in amount but depend on how much your project resonates with the general public and how much your organization works to promote the initiative with us. For more information please shoot us an e-mail.
