The Brown County Community Foundation (BCCF) is one of nearly 700 community foundations across the country dedicated to improving the quality of life in a particular region. The BCCF, established in 1993, is a foundation created by the community to serve the community.

For the past 25 years, the BCCF has served as a vehicle for donors, volunteers and community members to identify important issues, share ideas, and build financial resources to make positive long-term change.


Every day, the BCCF is helping individuals, businesses, and nonprofit organizations meet their charitable and financial goals by providing tools and resources that make giving to one’s community easier, flexible, and effective.

Through our work, we strive to create a stronger and more vibrant region, now and for generations to come. We work with donors to build endowments and partner with nonprofits to address needs through grantmaking. We also strive to inspire philanthropy throughout our community. A volunteer board of directors governs BCCF. They provide leadership to the Foundation and have the responsibility to ensure that endowments and donations are managed in an efficient, thoughtful way.
