About Us

Be Kind. Give Selflessly.

The Banks Foundation, Inc. started in 2017 after our founder, Diedre Banks, had an idea for people to celebrate love through giving called National Day Love®. She and husband, along with family and friends, birthed the Christian nonprofit organization that you see today.

All Hands In

Our Story

Starting in Houston, Texas, the vision has grown to multiple states.  We service schools and other nonprofits to support educational programs and community outreach through sponsorships and strategic partnerships, innovating scholarships, and empowering community outreach.

 

Our goal is to help people reach their full potential through love and education. Through National Day of Love®, celebrated on the third Saturday in March, we are able to provide valuable resources to our communities. Find out more at www.nationaldayoflove.org
