    BRCF DESIGNATED FUNDS 
    Check Out The New Listing
    For several years, BRCF has listed brief, historical facts about each scholarship fund administered by the Foundation in our Scholarship Resource Guide and on our website.  Recently, we decided to have our summer intern, Sarah Meredith, create the same type of recap for each of our other fund types.  Although collecting and compiling the information is time consuming, she is finished with the designated funds listing and we are excited to share it with our supporters. Stay tuned, as we will share other fund listings as they are completed.
