Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Mental Health, Substance Abuse Dependency, Prevention & Treatment

Mission: The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is a nonprofit public benefit corporation that empowers youth and adults with factual information about drugs so they can make informed decisions and live drug-free. No one, especially a young person, likes to be lectured about what he or she can or cannot do. Thus, we provide the facts that empower youth to choose not to take drugs in the first place. Additionally our Truth About Drugs campaign consists of activities that they can join which popularize drug-free living. These activities are simple, effective and can involve people of all ages. Through a worldwide network of volunteers, 56 million educational handouts have been distributed, tens of thousands of drug awareness events have been held in some 120 countries and Truth About Drugs public service announcements have been aired on 275 television stations. These materials and activities have helped people around the world learn about the destructive side effects of drugs and thereby make the decision for themselves to not use them. The Foundation provides information you need to start a Truth About Drugs education and prevention activity in your area.

Target demographics: provide free drug education and prevention materials and services.

Direct beneficiaries per year: deliver more than 200 free drug education events in New York and New Jersey.

Geographic areas served: Internationally - in numerous countries all over the globe. This page is dedicated to The Americas Chapter which operates in New York, New Jersey and Central America.

Programs: free drug education and prevention events, training seminars, curriculum, e-courses, app, virtual classroom, DVD, booklets, and more.

Foundation for a Drug Free World is a magnificently important organization to the modern society. When one looks into the unhappiness on the streets of local neighborhoods, it really opens eyes as to the real evil we are fighting: substance abuse. Foundation for a Drug Free World is actually doing something about this issue, and making our world and our neighborhoods a safer environment for our children to grow up in.

I have seen the work that Drug Free World has put into Portland, Oregon. The volunteers up there have spent hours upon hours educating the city’s population of the dangers of drugs. You don’t realize how unknown the truth about drugs really is to the general population until you see the huge effect it has on someone as they finally learn.

Foundation for a Drug Free World is one of the organizations that is going to bring our civilization out of the depths of addiction and substance abuse, and there’s few things more important to achieve a bright future for our children.

Extremely useful well presented materials. The booklets give the kids the knowledge to make good decisions in life. Staying away from drugs because they realized the path involvement will lead them down will not be a pleasant one!

I worked at a Private K-12th School for many years. When we had speakers come and talk with the Jr. High & High School students from Foundation for a Drug Free World and tell their stories the students really responded. They also felt it was an open environment for them to be able to ask questions and really engage. This contributed to having no drug related incidents with the students. It is a wonderful program!

Foundation for a Drug Free World provides the best educational material about dangerous drugs that I have ever seen, by far. The work they do to keep children out of the hands of drug pushers and the life-ruining misery they sell cannot be overstated. Lives are saved and lives are built one at a time when individuals make the right decisions. Making the right decisions requires the truth. Foundation for a Drug Free World provides it in abundance.

I used the curriculum from Drug Free World to teach students in middle school.
The videos and information were outstanding.
At the start, a girl said, “I don’t know why you’re going to talk to us about this (drugs), we’re going to try it anyway.”
I replied that I wanted them to have information other than from a drug dealer.
At the end of the course, students handed notes to me that said, “I am never using drugs again,” and “I will never try drugs, I know better now.”
The girl who spoke up at the beginning said, “The friends (of the student speakers in the videos) lied to them about drugs!” She was shocked.

A simple and powerful program, ready to deliver. I’ve see teachers and coaches use these booklets as tools to keep children educated. Simply “Say no to drugs” does not communicate any more. Education is the key!

The best prevention is education. The materials that the Foundation for Drug Free World provides is second to none and gives anyone the truth about drugs and the harmful effects they can have.

The volunteers who give the lectures and present the materials are special people who care that the parents and children get this information and can influence a persons life to not start or get off the road towards drugs. Your team should win a Medal for all you do and all you help!

I used to do drug education myself in California and am very familiar with Foundation for a Drug Free World and their philosophy. Megan is amazing. What she’s doing and her commitment to get the drug problem under control is what I was trying to do. She’s actually doing it. She’s one of the most effective speakers and influencers I’ve ever run into. Glad to donate to her and the Foundation.

This Foundation helps alot of people from New York to Haiti. The Founders, a daughter and father team, have been awarded by heads of States as well as heads of very large organizations for the very well done job they have done and carried out through many countries. They have definitely earned my respect. They continue to do great works especially in the city of New York and the country of Haiti.
