The mission of the Brian J. Honan Charitable Fund is the continued development of those causes which Brian championed throughout the course of his life. As a teacher, a prosecutor and a City Councilor, Brian endeavored to give ordinary people the chance to live extraordinary lives – through education, recreation, housing and healthcare.
The Brian J. Honan Charitable Fund will support and foster programs to help local communities realize the true potential of its citizens in creating those extraordinary lives. Much in the same way that Brian’s vocation in serving the people of his district – seniors, young people, community-based workers and educators, to name only a few – left an unparalleled legacy, it is our intent to strengthen the fabric of our local communities by continuing his great work on their behalf and honoring his lifelong commitment to people.
While we will never forget Brian’s boundless energy, charming wit, extraordinary intellect and unbridled passion for Allston and Brighton, the Foundation in his name will build on that legacy by developing a bridge of critical resources between donors and the organizations in our midst which work every day to help ordinary people to live extraordinary lives.
