FBB Capital Partners
FBB Capital Partners believes in giving back. Since 1989, our firm and its principals have donated to charities involved in aiding movements in ecology and sustainability here and around the world. We practice citizenship and lives of purpose. Below we highlight some of the charities we have been involved with. We hope you find these to be of interest.
FBB Capital Partners has been a member of the Heifer family since 1996 when we donated our first “ark” in honor of our clients. We have given an ark each year since then. Susan Fulton first met with Heifer in 1962 when, as a young reporter in Lititz, Pennsylvania, she heard about the efforts of Mennonite farmers after WWII to restock Europe’s milk cows. Susan served as a member of Heifer International’s Board of Directors.
FBB is proud to include Life Asset in its philanthropic endeavors. The mission of LifeAsset is to help alleviate poverty in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area by empowering people through affordable financial products, services, and education, thereby promoting self-help and self-respect and expanding social and economic opportunities for low-income individuals.
Smithsonian's National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute
The Smithsonian National Zoo’s Conservation and Biology Institute (SCBI) conducts research to aid the survival and recovery of species and their habitats and to ensure the health and well-being of animals in captivity and in the wild. FBB has been supporting the SCBI’s elephant fertility efforts since 2011. To recognize our 25th anniversary, FBBCapital Partners made a donation in 2012 to support the construction of the Speedwell Foundation Conservation Carousel at the National Zoo. FBB also helped fund the GiantPacific Octopus, one of the many endangered species featured on the Carousel.
Endowed by Susan Fulton in 1999, the Center is part of the Wilson College campus and the home for hands-on environmental education. The 50-acre farmstead includes a 7-acre organic vegetable farm, a passive-solar greenhouse and gardens, both solar and wind-generated electricity, and a biodiesel processor. The property is the home of the historic Owens Barn and Took e Farmhouse, both Civil War-era buildings. The Center houses the “Consumers Supporting Agriculture” website where consumers nationwide go to find organic farms in their neighborhoods.
Rosaria Communities is a neighborhood where resources meet to create homes for intellectually disabled citizens. After the homes are built or acquired and renovated, Rosaria leads the Welcome Wagon. New residents are introduced to their neighbors in the local Catholic parish that sponsors the home and ministers to our residents’ interests in friendship, community involvement, and spiritual nourishment. Our role is perpetual in assuring the moving parts are harmonious in promoting the well-being of our residents, and inefficient stewardship and maintenance of their homes.
The Literacy Council of Northern Virginia
Since its founding in 1962, the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia has trained thousands of volunteers to provide individual and classroom instruction to adults in basic reading and beginning-level English. Susan Fulton and FBB were honored in June of 2011 with the Literary Council’s Community Partner Award for their generous contributions.
FBB continues to support Jubilee Jobs, one of the longest-serving and best non-profit workforce development providers in the Greater Washington Region. Jubilee Jobs’ programs offer hope for job seekers all over Washington, DC, by encouraging every applicant throughout the entire job process. At the beginning of the process, each applicant meets with a job counselor, then attends workshops to help with interviewing skills, conflict resolution, and goal-setting, and ends with the individual obtaining a job. The vision of the Next Step program helps currently employed clients move towards stabilization and greater economic self-sufficiency.
Stand Beside Them
FBB is proud to include Stand Beside Them in its philanthropic endeavors. Stand Beside Them has served over 2,500 veterans since 2013 and their mission is to coach and empower America’s veterans to achieve success at home, at work, and in the community.
