The Foundation supports programs that address underserved populations, and programs that advance social justice, human health and consciousness, the welfare of animals and the environment.
About our Foundation
William and Nancy Brach founded the Brach Family Charitable Foundation in 1999 to further the philanthropic objectives expressed in our mission statement. They believed strongly in applying well-planned systemic approaches toward improving world conditions. These values are well-integrated in our commitment toward supporting compassionate, sustainable and intelligent philanthropic solutions.
Bringing Mindfulness into Philanthropy
Mindfulness practices increase awareness, sharpen critical thinking abilities, improve moral integrity and deepen capacities for empathy and compassion. Far greater emphasis upon teaching these practices is needed.
Agricultural Training For Africa’s Youth
Africa’s economy is driven heavily by agriculture. What we do to prepare young Africans today will improve their economic future tomorrow. Therefore, we must invest heavily in training the upcoming generation with the most effective and sustainable agricultural practices available.
Sidestepping the Healthcare Needs of Marginalized Americans
Sidestepping the health care needs of marginalized Americans is both poor economics and inhumane. The costs of emergency visits are often sited as a case for support. However, other stressors are often not sited.
A Difficult Look Into Animal Welfare
Kindness to and care of animals, both domestic and wild, is key to our humanity. Jeremy Bentham wrote, "The question is not, can they reason? Nor, can they talk? But, can they suffer?"
