Good To Be Good
Good To Be Good Foundation is an intersectional, community-wide, grassroots humanitarian and advocacy organization on a mission to serve marginalized communities and help build a kind and equal world.
Established in September 2016, we aim to strengthen the movement of lasting change through humanitarian and human rights-based work, community oriented service, advocacy, and the power of transformative giving.
Over the course of 4 years, our vision for a peaceful, equitable, and sustainable world for all continues to be guided by a gender-based lens grounded within a feminist, anti-oppressive, anti-racist, trauma-informed interconnected framework. Our intersectional efforts are rooted in a commitment to women’s rights, peacebuilding, and true equality, with a gender-responsive focus that addresses pivotal issues impacting women and girls, total equity, and human rights. Our annual inclusive events and year-round advocacy initiatives raise critical support and awareness, which serve the greatest needs of our partnered women’s shelters, low-barrier agencies, charitable organizations, and under-served communities. Additionally, we support drop-in centres and multi-service programs such as food banks, homeless shelters, refugee housing, women and women-identified social enterprises in line with our mission. We proudly provide hands-on, restorative, empowering support for women and their dependents in our communities who have felt the marginalized effects of gender-based violence, poverty, homelessness, and social isolation.
We believe that global change starts with creating impact locally. As a volunteer-powered, BIPOC and women-led organization, we are able to tailor our approach to address the immediate needs of our most vulnerable communities while also addressing the underlying conditions and systemic issues that make people vulnerable in the first place.
