We support programs and organizations that provide services to the at-risk and most vulnerable youth in our community. A strong start is the best investment in our community.

Our Impact

We encourage all organizations and direct service providers to send in funding requests for support. Over the years we have proudly supported scholarship opportunities as well as after school programs. Click below to see a list of the organizations and programs we are proud to have supported.



Over half a Million raised

Combining proceeds from the two signature events over the last 13 years, SCBA has raised and reinvested over half a million dollars right back into the South Coast.



Years Serving communities

We don’t just write the check, we want to inspire action. SCBA has been hosting events each year and more than making the donation, we want to know how we can be actively involved.



Members, Active & Emeritus

Founded in 2006 by local business professionals who wanted more than a “business network”, SCBA has been rolling up their sleeves. The current group is made up of 18 active members, one junior member and 6 Emeritus members who have served 10+ years to the organization.


Our Events

If you live in the Southeastern region of Massachusetts, you’re probably familiar with the yearly NB Oktoberfest held on the waterfront. Oktoberfest was the first event and fundraiser for SCBA and has grown to attract over one thousand attendees each year. The event features heritage and craft beers, local food vendors and music for an amazing and fun fall event. Click to read about our two signature events below.
