Heifer International

Learn More

FBB Capital Partners has been a member of the Heifer family since 1996 when we donated our first “Ark” in honor of our clients.  We have given an ark each year since then.  Susan Fulton first met with Heifer in 1962 when, as a young reporter in Lititz, Pennsylvania, she heard about the efforts of Mennonite farmers after WWII to restock Europe’s milk cows.  Susan served as a member of Heifer International’s Board of Directors.
