The Brown Sports Foundation(BSF) has been enormously helpful over its 25 year history in providing a link for Brown Rugby through newsletters and the broadcast e-mail system. The BSF also was instrumental in organizing and running our rugby field dedication in 2004, and the BSF staff maintains the database that keeps me in touch with all of you. There is no direct cost to us for this support, and no demand for funds. However, the money raised provides direct support to Brown Rugby and also helps the BSF meet its financial goals.
