Finer Future was founded on the principle of student lead initiatives. We want students to take their ideas, from as far and wide as their imagination can stretch, and put them on paper. Then add some realism, and design a plan that will put those ideas into actions and programs that can
With a motivation to see a future where students (as well as the community they reside) are inspired reach their highest potential.
The opportunities, both financially and socially, and the meaning of hard work and dedication that goes into public service and community improvement in the eyes of active high school and college students.
Of being a fully established nonprofit organization (501(c)(3) Tax status) offers our members a unique chance to learn the difficulties and rewards of leading a community organization, one that is entirely dependent on contributors, and focused on our schools and communities.
Our schools and communities, as well as our dedicated members, we offer all the business outlets that any other corporation would supply for their workforce; however, our focus is solely on selfless dedication to our mission.
Are the main target of our resources, we focus on bringing them opportunities through scholarships, and membership positions in our organization that expose them to the real work and dedication that goes into "making a change."
For those not in a school, we focus on you too, we work to improve conditions of living, and offer an outlet for interested individuals to join us in our community development projects.
Finer Future is innovative, creative, and driven by the ambition of past and present students who want to see their school and community thrive.
UContribute is how Finer Future works. Without contributors like you, either by volunteering or donating to our programs we would no longer exist. As a Public Charity, at least 1/3 of our donations must come from the general public over the course of five years. That may not sound like much, but while raising large amounts of funds for our scholarships and programs, that requires substantial outreach and dedication from our volunteer staff. For that reason we need you, your friends and family, and all others you know who would be interested with volunteering at, or donating to Finer Future for the improvement of community opportunity.
