Community Partnerships

Giving Back In Charlottesville.

W.E. Brown has been a participating partner in the Charlottesville community for nearly 100 years. We are proud to have joined forces with CBS 19 Newsplex to create Giving Back designed to help non-profit organizations by bringing recognition to their tireless work in helping our neighbors. We’ll feature a new organization each month, and we encourage everyone to get involved with our local non-profits and support their inspiring missions.
