The Brown Foundation Center

The Joe W. and Dorothy Dorsett Brown Foundation Center opened March 31, 2003. It broadens the roots of this New Orleans-based, private Foundation which began in 1958.

The Brown Foundation Center houses the offices of the Foundation, the Brown Foundation Service Learning Program and other non-profit groups. A meeting space, the
Community Conference Room, is also available for use by non-profit groups and local, community organizations.

The Board of Trustees decided the building itself would serve the community and act as an incubating facility for qualified 501(c)3 non-profit organizations. Space is offered for rent at a discount to ease the financial burden so many non-profit groups face. The Board’s wish is to offer a professional environment at a prime location to allow an organization to come into fruition and successfully move out to sustainable independence.

Please contact Harry Peneguy, Facilities Director for questions concerning availability of rental space at the Center.
