To inspire meaningful community engagement and cultivate effective leadership to create a stronger future for the Middle Border Region. 


Middle Border Forward (MBF) was established in December 2015 as the capstone project of an 18-month fellowship of emerging grassroots leaders in the region sponsored by Danville Regional Foundation.  Today, as an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, MBF is on a mission to build social capital in the City of Danville, Pittsylvania County, and Caswell County by providing innovative opportunities for people to #BeTheChange they want to see where they live, work & play.

MBF’s work focuses on grassroots leadership development and community engagement.  Chief among our values are a commitment to inclusivity and the belief that every person has the potential to make a positive impact in their community.
