We are helping others help themselves.
It only takes a little to make a big impact on someone else's life. We empower individuals to help themselves so that they will be capable of helping others.
The Stafford Foundation is a charitable organization based on the principles of Jesus Christ with a glocal mission of helping others to help themselves.
We envision a world in which all people will have the opportunity to become self-reliant and live in dignity.
GBYG was founded in partnership with other organizations that help the underserved. This unique program provides the homeless and at-risk populations with opportunities to visit hospitals, assisted living centers and other care facilities as well as build homes which affords them the opportunity to give back.
Many who are typically on the receiving end of charity now have the opportunity of assisting others in need. This experience ingrains a sense of self-dignity and worth. Anchored in Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland, the program has been replicated in Cleveland, Memphis, and New Orleans.
Over the years, The Stafford Foundation has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants and assistance to individuals and participating organizations.

Over the past decade, we have built more than 20 churches and provided critical assistance in Liberia, Tanzania, and Zambia. We have built world-class training centers and dormitories in South Africa, Rwanda, Uganda, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone and the Republic of Congo. We've partnered with AfriCARE and other organizations to make a significant impact in over 25 different countries in Africa.
Developed in collaboration with International Cooperating Ministries (ICM) and the Evangelical Association for Development Support (AEAD), the Stafford Centre is now home to 24 orphaned boys and 25 girls and will eventually house over 100 children in need.
In addition, the Centre provides a school for teaching basic literacy and math to adults; a school for orphans and other vulnerable children attended by boys and girls of all ages; and a Conference Centre that hosts children’s Bible camps, Christian leadership groups and even volleyball tournaments.

The Doing Good Initiative inspires and empowers all people to lend a hand and make a difference in the world. The Stafford Foundation has a long history of helping people from all walks of life. It is well known for it’s People’s Inauguration Project (PIP) that brought more than 400 individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds to experience the 2009 inaugural celebration for President Barack Obama.
The Doing Good Initiative has expanded to include an annual “Doing Good” breakfast where we honor local heroes doing good in their communities as well as highlighting the impacts of our Global Ambassadors Program.
In addition to the annual breakfast, we collaborate with organizations to provide “Doing Good” scholarships to high-potential students who are service oriented.
