What does BeGreatDC do? Everything. 


We create service opportunities and other events that build a connection between those in need & those who have to give. 


We host panel discussions tackling important issues impacting our communities that need to be addressed.


We raise funds not only for our organization, but for other charities that we think should be supported.

Where there is a need, we find a way to fulfill it.


We are a community helping others, help others.

"When others need to be uplifted, we want to be there to do the lifting through service and most importantly, through love."

Rachael Payton, Founder & President of BeGreatDC
