Brother’s Brother Foundation is a gift-in-kind charity that focuses on medical and educational needs around the world.

What is a Gift-in-kind Charity?
A gift-in-kind charity accomplishes its mission by accepting and then redirecting donations of goods and services to areas in need. This allows individuals and corporations such as publishers and pharmaceutical companies to pass their surplus items on to those in need. Many of the materials that are donated to gift-in-kind charities are surplus supplies and equipment. Charities like BBF help to connect that surplus with the needs of people worldwide.
BBF works with partner organizations and mission trip groups to connect donations of medicines, medical supplies and equipment, textbooks and educational supplies to specific needs around the world. By working with partners on the ground, BBF can reliably supply these efforts in the most efficient way possible. This process ensures that BBF can make the most of each donated dollar.
