At Brown Brothers Harriman, it is good to share your time and talent to help those who need it most. In fact, giving back is so ingrained in our culture that we created BBHcares, a philanthropic program dedicated to providing education and basic necessities to those in need. Entirely employee-driven, BBHcares’ activities are sponsored by the firm and spearheaded by volunteers whose passion infuses energy into each initiative. And through partnerships with non-profits, we provide opportunities for employees to learn about the issues facing our communities and how to be part of the solution.
Our Focus Areas: Basic Needs and Education
Our philanthropic focus areas promote stability and aim to foster long-term success. Providing basic needs—food, clothing, and shelter—and supporting educational programs enables individuals and families to take control of their finances, gain independence, and achieve economic sustainability.
Activities we support include:
- serving meals to the homeless and stocking food pantries
- donating food, school supplies, clothes, and toys for the holiday season
- building homes for low-income families
- financial literacy and technical skills training
- teaching leadership skills
- literacy and mentoring programs
Our mission is to engage children, youth, and families, and to increase the success rates of the diverse members of the communities in which we live and work.
