The mission of Brace Cove Foundation is to enrich lives in our community through engaged grant making. Our grants support food security, basic social services and access for all to education in the arts. 

We also help small nonprofits increase their impact through strategic planning and organizational development and through small grants for specific community projects.

Brace Cove Foundation was started by Walter Herlihy and Nancy LeGendre in 2015.
