Why Give?

It’s time.

We are the only foundation that addresses the needs of Brookline as a whole. And there’s no time like the present to make an impact. We’re committed to serving the needs of our community, and we search for creative, effective ways to fill those needs, doing the right thing and stretching resources the farthest.

We listen. And we’re open.

We hear our donors.

For almost two decades, donors have relied on the Foundation for philanthropic expertise and guidance. Rely on our local knowledge. Make an impact with your giving. Together we can make meaningful changes in our community.

We are governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. Gifts entrusted to us are professionally managed and monitored regularly by an independent investment advisory committee. As a public charitable foundation, we offer maximum deductibility for income, gift and estate tax purposes.
