The GPAB foundation was established in honor of the late Gerard Paul Alexander Brown to assist cancer patients and their families. Knowing what it is like to care for someone with cancer and the expenses that follows, the Brown family created the fund to assist others going through tough emotional and financial times. By the grace of God, the Brown family made it through and felt it is their duty to give back to the community. Despite their toughest times, the Browns turned their turmoil into triumph and G.P.A.B Foundation was born to pay it forward.
In support of the foundation, the Browns have pledged a percentage of sales and fundraising events to be donated to the GPAB Foundation which partners with The Cancer Society of the Bahamas. In August 2017, the Brownstone Group donated $10,000 to the Cancer Society of the Bahamas, and have vowed to continue donations and fundraisers for the years to come. The Brown family has vowed to assist in fulfilling the foundations vision of “Giving Other Families their Stone.” For more information on Brownstone’s GPAB foundation you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nassau, Bahamas August 14th, 2017 - The Brownstone Group of Companies today donated $10,000 to The Bahamas Cancer Society as a part of The Gerard Paul Alexander Brown Fund (G.P.A.B Fund).
The foundation was established in honor of the late Gerard Paul Alexander Brown, who was diagnosed with a rare form of T-cell lymphoma and passed away on August 14th, 2007. Months after his death, the family met to discuss the way forward and keep Gerard Senior’s name alive. From that very meeting “Brownstone” was born - derived from a collaboration of the family name and their father’s tombstone.
Brownstone Group is a family owned and operated company that was born out of necessity and today is a thriving collection of companies. Today, Brownstone Group is made up of services and products that include: guesthouse accommodations, event venue & decor rentals, transportation services and an art and accents gallery.
At the foundation of the company has always been the organization that helped the family patriarch during his time of need. It’s for that reason that the Brownstone Group continues to operate the GPAB Fund over the past nine years. Company President Janet Brown says, “Assisting the Cancer Society of The Bahamas allows other people and families in need, the help they deserve and only the Cancer Society can provide. That is why our family will always help because they are there for many families when they need them through their tough times.”
Following today’s donation, The Brownstone Group has vowed to continue their contributions both financially and through volunteer work with the Cancer Society of The Bahamas.
