The Fund will support community organizations and efforts to advance racial equity and racial justice for the Brookline community.

Perugini, who serves as Vice Chair of the Brookline Community Foundation’s Board of Trustees, said “We will continue our core work to support Brookline via strategic grantmaking and responding to community needs, building on learnings from the past year and more explicitly centering equity in our work to build a better Brookline for all.”
