When corporations have a vision bigger than their profit and loss statement, amazing things can happen.


BNI is one such corporation and Beth and Ivan Misner have set the bar high for their philanthropic impact in the world. Started by the Misners in 1998, the BNI Foundation focuses on mobilizing resources to give kids around the world quality education through the Business Voices initiative.BNI believes this is one of the best ways to have a positive impact on the world’s business climate.

What is Business Voices?

BNI has a long, proud legacy of reaching in and helping out where schools have needed extra funding for specific projects not provided for by school districts or state funding. A pivotal factor of our philanthropic world was the creation of the Business Voices initiative to be able to provide even more to the schools which have the greatest needs.
