Fall Community Grant


BCF’s Commitment to Community Needs

Using what we learned from our Understanding Brookline reports and subsequent research and analysis, the Brookline Community Foundation has identified the following strategic priorities:

  • Reduce and alleviate poverty by addressing urgent needs, strengthening Brookline’s support network, and creating pathways out of poverty.

  • Expand out of school time opportunities particularly for middle school aged youth by filling programmatic gaps, including programming for youth who are at-risk and/or from low-income families.

We particularly welcome proposals for the Fall Community grant cycle that address these priorities.

As the Brookline Community Foundation moves forward with our strategic priorities, we continue to serve the town as a whole, funding organizations and initiatives that address diverse community needs. Through the Fall Community grant cycle we also welcome proposals on:

  • Expanding access to arts and culture programming

  • Protecting the environment

  • Aging in place

  • Nurturing young children and families

  • Health and Wellness
