We are a non-profit. The Brownsville Community Foundation qualifies as a Section 501 (c)(3) public charity under the Internal Revenue Code. Every fund created in the Brownsville Community Foundation qualifies for the maximum charitable deduction permitted by law.

We are geographically focused. Community foundations like ours focus on a local area where we can get to know every social need, every organization, and every neighborhood. That way, we know where to put our donors' gifts so they do the most good.

We are well governed. The Board of the Brownsville Community Foundation provide stewardship for all contributed funds. Serving without compensation, the board members approve all grants made, review investment performance and oversee the operation of the Foundation. The men and women who make up our Board represent Brownsville's most distinguished civic and business leaders. Their charge is to serve our donors and our community.

We provide a service to donors. The Brownsville Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides expert, efficient administrative services for funds created by individuals, families and organizations in our community.

We support local non-profits organizations.
