Fort Bend Friends and Neighbors (FBFN) is a social organization bringing ladies of Fort Bend County together for fellowship and fun.  The charitable arm of the FBFN social club is the FBFN Foundation. The Foundation was established in the fall of 2012 as a 501(c)3 non- profit, tax-exempt Texas organization.

The Foundation’s primary focus is to provide scholarships to graduating seniors or current college students who attend or will be attending Fort Bend County colleges. Since 2005 the Foundation has awarded $310,000 in scholarships. Applications will open again in January 2023.

The FBFN Social club is in the process of creating a cookbook with recipes from some of the finest cooks in the county who are members of the organization. All net proceeds will benefit the scholarship program. Books go on sale September 29th just in time for Christmas gift giving. Contact Joy Dowell at 281.844.4982 or for more information or to order your cookbook.  Go to the website to donate to the scholarship program at  For information on joining the social club, complete an application online at
