A Toast To Our Bright Future

NEWPORT BEACH, CA – BRETHREN COMMUNITY FOUNDATION’S GUESTS NOT ONLY RAISED A TOAST, BUT OVER $31,000 TO SUPPORT DISADVANTAGED YOUTH AND SENIORS AT THEIR “A TOAST TO OUR BRIGHT FUTURE” INAUGURAL FUNDRAISING EVENT

Dear Friends-

We are so thankful for your attendance at our Inaugural Brethren Community Foundation event, “A Toast to Our Bright Future.” We are thrilled to invite you along in our journey of celebrating 50-years of transformation of Brethren Service. It was wonderful to see so many family members, friends and business colleagues that have supported us through the years, as well as meet new friends representing organizations we’ve funded or may fund in the future.

We ask you to continue to help us accomplish our mission: To benefit both youth and seniors through philanthropic grants to non-profit organizations and individuals of all backgrounds needing financial assistance due to family instability, poverty and/or challenges adapting to the community.

We are dedicated and excited to make a difference in the communities we live in.

Within the next month we will announce our process for receiving Letters of Intent for our 2016 grant application submissions. If you or an organization you know would like to be on our interest list, please contact our Brethren Community Foundation Development Director, Sandi Hanscom at sandi@brethrencommunityfoundation.org. She would also like you to “Like” our FACEBOOK page…and sign up for upcoming newsletters on our website: www.brethrencommunityfoundation.org.

Lastly, please spread the word about the good works that we are doing for youth and seniors alike. We cannot transform lives and futures without the financial support and innovative ideas of people like you.

Many, many thanks…

Kindest Regards,
Board of Directors of the Brethren Community Foundation
