Building Futures Now Wins The 2015 IKEA Life Improvement Challenge and Receives Complete Makeover
Building Futures Now (BFN) is this year’s winner of the IKEA East Palo Alto Life Improvement Challenge. IKEA’s design team will revamp BFN’s student center to better serve the 100 elementary through high school students who participate in the year round program.

“We are so excited to receive this grant opportunity and welcome the partnership with the IKEA East Palo Alto store”, said Penny Gallo, President of BFN.

IKEA wants to play a part in creating a better life for the many people, as well as communities, touched by IKEA business. While IKEA works on a global level to improve the lives of people in developing countries, IKEA also wants to be a good neighbor in its local communities. The IKEA Life Improvement Co-worker Challenge is one way to make a difference closer to home.
