BCF partners with numerous donors and organizations to create funds benefiting the Brookline community. You can contribute to these existing funds or establish a fund of your own.
Wondering where to make a contribution? We’d recommend considering a gift to one of the following funds:
BCF Fund for Brookline (unrestricted)
This unrestricted fund allows BCF to award discretionary grants that help carry out our mission to shine a spotlight on community needs, inspire philanthropy and award strategic grants to build a more vibrant, engaged and equitable Brookline.
BCF Rapid Response Fund
This fund allows BCF to address short-term, emergency needs in our community in the aftermath of a disaster or other unforeseen event.
BCF Safety Net Fund
This fund allows BCF to provide temporary emergency assistance, such as food vouchers, money for back rent or fuel bills and extraordinary expenses such as moving costs, transportation costs for job seekers, or essential furniture, to Brookline residents in times of financial crisis and unexpected need and to support pathways to economic security.
BCF Scholarship Fund for Brookline High School
This endowed designated fund allows BCF, in collaboration with Brookline High School and Town of Brookline, to help Brookline High School students who have a financial need with scholarships to pursue their dream of a post-secondary or college education.
