Community Grants

The Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation’s mission is to bring the energy and interests of Brown Rudnick volunteers together with opportunities and resources to create positive social change. To maximize its effect, the Foundation Directors chose to focus on inner-city education in Boston, Providence, Hartford, New York, Washington DC, Orange County and London, United Kingdom. Since 2001, dozens of grants have been made and collaborative efforts undertaken, in each of these cities consistent with this initiative.
