Bibiyan Family Philanthropic Foundation: A Charitable Organization
Now in its fifth year, the BFPF award is being given to USAID for innovation in technology. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) unveiled both a new biomedical suit and the MultiSense Memory wearable sensor in 2015: Two innovations that point to a new way of tackling the world’s poverty, health and disaster response issues facing a 54-year-old agency that was actually created through the same presidential order as the Peace Corps.
About Bibiyan Family Philanthropic Foundation
Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, the Bibiyan Family Philanthropic Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives.
Below please find a list of core values that are inherently significant to the foundation and its goals going forward.
Innovation; We want to reward contemporary, high tech companies that use creative and innovative means to address social problems. We intend on giving out grants, awards, and additional accolades to companies or groups that fit. Ben & Jerry’s was the first company to be awarded the BFPF Award for Social Good
Humanity; The foundation intends on supporting the most essential of humanitarian causes and organizations. The American Red Cross, and Glasser Pediatric AIDS foundation are two such organizations BFPF remains committed to.
Spirituality; The need for spirituality in our society has never been greater. From all walks of spiritual and religious life, BFPF will continue to support causes rooted in helping the community reach its full spiritual potential. Chabad House of New York and California along with The Center for Buddhism in Los Angeles are just two such examples of organizations we pledge further commitment to.
Liberty & Democracy; To support political movements that dictate liberty, democracy, and fairness for all members of society has become a pivotal point for BFPF and will no doubt continue in the future. Democracy Now, Common Dreams, and the Occupy Movements have all been supported in the past by BFPF.
USAID, which is tasked with ending extreme poverty and often acts as an early responder at disasters like the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Japan’s 2011 tsunami and the recent Ebola outbreak, received over 1,500 suit submissions.
