To provide stimulating opportunities and resources that advance education, informed individual and community participation, and career development, with respect for human dignity, understanding and value of service to others.
K B S Foundation Ltd. was conceptualized in 2007 by several professionals from various walks of life, who resided in Brooklyn and identified a need to provide increased youth development opportunities to students of color. The Foundation is an established 501(c) (3) entity, incorporated under the laws of the New York State, in 2008. Inspired by a Fraternity of college educated, professional men, the Foundation recognizes the importance of sustaining a culture of responsible male citizenship with respect and support for families and communities of which they are a part, enabling achievement and success through learning, self-expression, and relationship building. The mission and purpose of the Foundation is to award scholarships to worthy students of color in pursuit of higher education, conduct community educational programs which will aid in educational and vocational improvement and promote activities that advance the overall social and educational development of young men. This is accomplished through significant partnerships with human service agencies, fraternal organizations, government, private foundations, and businesses that are located throughout New York City. K B S Foundation Ltd. is part of the Kappa Beta Sigma Chapter of the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.
