article 2

The Brownsville Community Foundation was created in 1997 to provide an enduring, sustainable structure for encouraging community philanthropy and improving the lives of people in Brownsville.

The Foundation’s goal is to build a permanent endowment, with the income used to improve the heath, education and quality of life in the Brownsville community. As a catalyst for positive change, the Foundation builds on the strengths that already exist, and targets new and existing programs with the potential to address important local challenges. The Foundation also provides technical assistance and support to local non-profit organizations working on a range of important issues.
