Mission Statement

The Better Living Foundation was formed in 1988 to help fulfill Better Living's mission to give back to the Charlottesville-Albemarle community where they first began business in 1893. Contributions are made to nonprofit organizations based on an annual review of applications for assistance. According to Richard Nunley, Chairman of Better Living, Inc., The Foundation has enabled the local retailer to continue supporting charities that depend on donations to do their work, especially when times are tough.

Compassion and caring for those in need extends from Better Living through their employees and vendors. Year-round activities include partnerships with the American Cancer Association, Golden Apple Awards for Teachers, Habitat for Humanity, Heart Association, MDA and others. The company expresses admiration for the many volunteers and administrators of nonprofit organizations who serve Central Virginia. More information is available at
