Brownsville Community Foundation | News and Info

Brownsville Community Foundation Inc.



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 health, education and quality of life in our community. As a catalyst for change, the Foundation builds on the strengths that already exist here, and targets new and existing programs with the potential to address important local challenges. It also provides technical assistance and support to local non-profit organizations working on a range of important issues. Service to donors is among our highest priorities.
