As your local partner in philanthropy, the Brookline Community Foundation (BCF) helps people like you address the causes that matter most to Brookline’s residents.
We listen to our donors, because we are committed to serving the needs of our community, and we search for creative, effective ways to fill those needs. Our accounts are public, and we are governed by a limited-term, volunteer Board of Trustees. Grants are professionally administered and formally evaluated for effectiveness. Gifts entrusted to us are professionally managed, and monitored regularly by an independent investment advisory committee. As a public charitable foundation, we are able to offer the maximum deductibility for income, gift and estate tax purposes.
