BBYO’s Friends and Alumni Network (FAN)
BBYO’s Friends and Alumni Network (FAN) consists of alumni, parents and supporters of BBYO who have come together to support BBYO in their local communities. BBYO separated from B’nai B’rith International in 2002. Now, as an independent organization, BBYO looks to FAN, its most passionate supporters, to secure its future. Responding to this need, a group of committed adults who believe in the power of BBYO experiences formed the Friends and Alumni Network (FAN). Today, FAN exists in approximately 40 communities, each headed by volunteer leaders who engage their communities in supporting BBYO. Every penny raised in a particular community directly funds BBYO in that community. All told, FAN raises approximately $2,000,000 each year to support BBYO teens.
The role of FAN consists of three main components:
- Building community
- Raising Funds
- Supporting our teens
In addition to the support that FAN provides on the local level, there are many benefits to being part of BBYO’s broad network of over 300,000 living alumni and supporters. With alumni all over the world, many of whom hold prestigious positions in business, entertainment, education, politics and Jewish life, FAN can provide countless valuable connections to expand both your personal and professional life.
