Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Grant Program
Designed to Help Inner-City Educators
TheBrown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., a nonprofit tax-
exempt entity established by attorneys from Brown Rudnick Berlack
Israels LLP ( http://www.brownrudnick.com/ ), has launched a
Community Grant Program. Created to support frontline educators
who often do not have a voice in funding decisions, the program
will subsidize small, concrete projects to improve inner-city
education in Boston, Hartford, Providence, or New York City.
The applicant must be a "frontline educational worker" who is
involved in education or a related field in one of the communi-
ties eligible for grants. The proposed recipient must be a non-
profit or tax-exempt organization (e.g., a public school) that
is willing to accept the grant and use it in the required manner.
The proposed use of the grant must be to fund a specific, one-
time future education-related need or idea that promises to
improve inner-city education within one year of the grant award.
The foundation will generally consider grant applications monthly
and award grants in an amount totaling not more than $2,000 in
any one month.
The grant applications and an explanation of the program can be
found at the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation.
