The founding members of BEST noticed a significant gap in the community services provided for the Bangladeshis living in North Texas. While there were (and still are) several cultural programs and events throughout the year, no organizations were addressing the most important factors – how to keep the growing number of second and third generation youth connected to our culture and community. That’s where BEST stepped in – to bridge the gap between the traditional Bangladeshi culture and the western world where the second and third generations are growing up.
BEST was formed in 2010 with a mission to be the premier organization for Bangladeshi Americans living in Texas by: – Helping the community with social services – Supporting recent immigrations with their assimilation into mainstream American society – Fostering an environmental of unity and, – Promoting and preserving Bangladeshi heritage and culture.
We appreciate the continual support of our Founding Members. Your generosity helps us provide the community with quality programming and services. We would also appreciate a consistent stream of support. Please consider a yearly minimum donation of $100. This will help us tremendously with funds to maintain all of our annual programs such as Bangla Blast, Boishaki Mela, the Best Cares Health Fair, and more.
If you wish to sign up for a yearly commitment, please contact any one of our Executive Committee Members. Thank you.
