To empower individuals to do more for good by creating positive programs with volunteer opportunities that are supported, promoted, and sustained by local communities.
DoMore4:Good is a 501(c)3 with its headquarters in New York, NY. We are working in communities nationally to bring about change and better lives through our school programs.
Our school programs align DoMore4:Good with high schools and local nonprofits in a friendly rewards-based competition designed to inspire students to perform acts of kindness and volunteerism in a way that is fun and educational. Our school program goals are to:
- Have thousands of acts of kindness and volunteer hours completed by the end of the project
- Encourage students to integrate kindness and service into their daily lives - Raise awareness of and promote action on important issues in our community

What makes DoMore4:Good unique is our ability to work both within the schools and with local community organizations to not only connect students to weekly acts of service, but to ensure they get to these opportunities which often means we bring the opportunities to the schools. Students' volunteer hours are recorded and tracked and they are recognized and rewarded for their service. There is an element of friendly competition to further make the experiences fun. We believe that although students may originally engage for the rewards, they swiftly recognize the intrinsic value of volunteering and doing something to improve their communities.
Board Chair Statement
I founded DoMore4:Good because I believe the way to change the world is through acts of kindness and service, starting with the youth. The inspiration came from spending an enlightening and educational year deep in the jungles of Panama. The journey left me with a new focus toward positivity and acts of kindness as a source of overall well-being. One of our main challenges - as it is for most organizations - is raising the funds to support our programs. We need donations of incentives for the students, supplies for the projects and transportation to the volunteer activities. Although a young organization, we already see the value - and the changes in the students - of giving back to their communities and helping to transform them through kindness and service.
