When so many struggle in this world, it's hard to decide who or how to help

OUR Story

In 2005, Co-Founders Ron Dunster, Ivan Olinsky and Michele Lawrence receive permission from the State of NJ to create a 501c3 non-profit organization called "The Give Back Foundation, Inc. in Allentown, NJ. The organization is also incorporated. Our NJ State Registration/EIN # is 51-0550579.

GBF appoints a Board of Directors and begins assisting residents in the 5 NJ counties of Mercer,  Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean and Burlington who struggle with life altering circumstances.

As GBF approaches it's 10th year, we are happy to announce that our organization has helped hundreds of people/families and donated over $600,000 to recipients in need.  This amount does not include medical equipment/supplies, food, clothing or furniture collected and donated.


There have been many changes over the last few years, but GBF remains committed to providing assistance to those in need in our area.  We are always looking for new fundraising ideas and always welcome new supporters!
