For The Good

For the Good

For the Good, founded in 2002, is a dynamic community development agency dedicated to supporting people living in poverty to overcome their circumstance through their own means. With an emphasis on three areas, Positive Youth Development, Economic Self Sufficiency and Community Empowerment, FTG has, over the years, developed programs which speak to creating strength and sustainability in these areas.

Program development includes the Study Buddy Club, the Utica Community Gardening Initiative, the Mohawk Valley Entrepreneurs Guild, Juneteenth, the Utica Phoenix and the Oneida County Black History Archive. The fine and performing arts are also a focus of attention when resources are available. In 2008, Academy Award Winner Adrien Brody donated $50,000 for the production of the original musical, the Wonderful Wizard of Was, at the Stanley Theatre.
