The Brookline Community Foundation is pleased to announce new leadership team members. Over the past year, BCF has welcomed five new Board of Trustee members, three new Professional Advisors Committee (PAC) members, six new Brookline Youth Fund Advisory Committee (BYFAC) members and two new staff members.

PAC is a committee of Brookline-area professionals appointed by the Board of Trustees to act as BCF ambassadors and advisers for philanthropic, fiduciary and legal matters.

BYFAC is a committee of Brookline residents appointed by the Board of Selectmen. Members share information about the Brookline Youth Fund program, provide advice and insight into youth-serving organizations, and make recommendations to nonprofits to apply.

“We are so thankful for the dedicated leaders who have devoted time and energy to the Brookline Community Foundation. We are excited about our new team members; each one brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to BCF as well as commitment to build a better Brookline”, says Executive Director, Jenny Amory.
