Relationship Grants

Since 2001, the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation has awarded annual Relationship Grants to tax-exempt organizations for programs designed to improve education in underserved communities. These annual grants seek to form relationships that provide not just financial support, but also deeper connections through pro bono legal representation and/or volunteerism. Grantees are selected annually based upon a rigorous review of grant applications. These grants have helped to launch, sustain and grow scores of successful programs and organizations over the years.


The 2022-23 Relationship Grant Application period has closed.
