About Us


Gamma Iota Boulé Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt charitable organization dedicated to improving living conditions in the Greater Rochester Area.

Many individuals of African descent in the Greater Rochester Area are facing serious economic, health, and educational challenges. These challenges negatively affect them, their families, and the overall wellbeing of our Community. To help with these issues, our organization focuses on social and charitable activities dealing with Healthy Living Awareness, Economic Development, Leadership Development, and Advancement of Education.

We provide direct resources and act as a catalyst for the creation and development of a network of strategic partners focused on positively affecting the wellbeing of individuals of African descent in our area, as well as their families, and the overall Community. Through scholarships, grants, programs, and partnerships, we are addressing today’s needs now and laying a foundation for success in the future.

Our Vision is to transform Rochester into one of the top 10 cities for individuals of African descent to live in, whereby their abilities/skills, contributions, and potential are recognized, celebrated, nurtured, and utilized in a fair and equitable manner.
