Raised for Nonprofits

Better Block Foundation

Better Block Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that educates, equips, and empowers communities and their leaders to reshape and reactivate built environments to promote the growth of healthy and vibrant neighborhoods.
For some, an office is just an office. A space with desks, chairs, a printer. It's a place to get work done. And then it's a place to leave. For us at the Better Block, an office is an opportunity to change the world. Ambitious? Perhaps. But we're nothing if not dreamers. The Better Block headquarters is part office, part co-working space, part event venue, and part makerspace where people in the community can learn, dream, and create. As we continue to create this gathering ground, we're looking for funds and creative talent to help us achieve our ambitious goals. This space is for the community by the community. The door is open to all to come in, learn, and be inspired. By inviting the immediate community into the revitalization process, the city, the creatives involved, and the neighborhood will understand that progress does not have to equal loss of culture, but can be positively felt across various demographics. Our makerspace is a program that will bring together multiple organizations and industries into one space. By creating a gathering ground for thought leaders, we'll be filling a void in our city's urban landscape. Not only will the space serve the purpose of uniting people, but it will also bring energy to a part of town that is on the cusp of great revitalization. Our previous work has proven that we are capable of empowering neighbors to make change and better their built environment. This space adds another dimension to this work.
