The Born This Way Foundation was founded in 2011 by Lady Gaga and her mother. Lady Gaga's eccentricities and her famous song by the same name put her in a great position to give back to her fans and others in need. According to their website, the goal of the foundation is to foster a more accepting society, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated.
