In total, the Brown Rudnick Foundation has donated over $200,000 to 11 non-profits nationally through its 2014-2015 Relationship grants program. All of the grants support inner-city education programs throughout the cities in which law firm Brown Rudnick LLP has offices, including Boston, Providence and Hartford. The New England-based grant recipients include East Boston High School, Thompson Island Outward Bound, Hull Lifesaving Museum, Arts and Business Council of Greater Boston, and the Mark Twain House and Museum. The funds given to these non-profits will support initiatives that increase scientific literacy for high school students, support apprentice programs, and continue to fund art, law, and writing programs for teens.
“I believe that we face a transformative moment in education. Many educators and non-profit organizations are introducing new ideas and innovative programs that will help advance the shared mission of improving inner-city education. We are excited by their energy and look forward to partnering with them in the coming year,” said President Jeffrey L. Jonas in a message from Foundation President on the Brown Rudnick’s Center for the Public Interest website.
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. The New England Council applauds the Brown Rudnick Foundation for its continued dedication to education throughout New England and the country.
