For 22 years, I had the honor to serve as the President and CEO of the Weingart Foundation. During that time, the Foundation supported many outstanding community-based organizations. Under the leadership of Charisse Bremond Weaver, Brotherhood Crusade exemplifies what it means to be an effective, impactful, community-driven nonprofit organization working to address the impacts of social, economic, and racial inequity. For over 53 years, Brotherhood Crusade has provided critically important human and social services to the South Los Angeles community. Most importantly, Brotherhood Crusade has been a steadfast and effective advocate for the underserved and marginalized. For individual and philanthropic organizations who want to invest with impact, Brotherhood Crusade is an excellent choice.

Renovations with a Purpose

Brotherhood Crusades President and CEO Charisse Bremond Weaver has a simple and important ask: She is seeking thoughtful donors to provide $250,000 to refurbish one of the nonprofit’s dilapidated buildings into a resplendent youth development center. 

“The young people really need their own space to thrive,” Bremond Weaver says. “This is a great place, it’s a great building. It just needs a lot of love.”

Additionally, Brotherhood Crusade secured scholarship funds for Rufus for his freshman year at Morehouse. If you want to help young men and women like him, you can support scholarships as well.
