To fulfill our mission, BBM relies completely on generous in-kind donations, grants, and sponsor funding.

Our Sustaining Sponsors

Day in and day out, year in and year out, these organizations provide crucial continuing support to Brown Bag Ministry. Without their contributions, we would very likely be in a financially nonviable position (or, at the very least, would only be able to serve a small fraction of the clients we do today).
