Roseville, Calif. – Earning a college degree with the help of a much-needed scholarship.

Being active and learning some of life’s most-valuable lessons, from camaraderie to sportsmanship, by participating in youth sports.

Getting through a challenging emotional and financial period, such as a job loss or the sudden death of a loved one. Or even the ability for seniors to access health care at home that helps them age in place, improves their health and saves everyone money.

All have been made possible, and so much more, thanks to community support for the JB Brown Fund.

What started as an idea during a drive to the airport, has helped more than 1,000 low-income residents reach new heights since 2011.

The JB Brown Fund will hold an online auction Oct. 31-Nov. 3, one of the many fundraising efforts by the organization throughout the year.

Auction Items

More than 20 items – from a beach house getaway to original artwork – are available. One auction item is perfect for Sacramento sports fans, with tickets to the Sacramento Kings, Sacramento River Cats and the Sacramento Republic FC.

Helping low-income residents

All money raised from the auction benefit the JB Brown Fund is a partnership between USA Properties Fund and LifeSTEPS, a social-services provider at many USA Properties-owned and -managed affordable apartment communities in California, including 35 in the Sacramento region.

The JB Brown Fund helps low-income residents – from hardworking single parents to seniors living on a fixed-income – achieve their dreams, like attending and completing college, or deal with an unexpected financial emergency, such as paying for a new pair of eyeglasses or hearing aids to vehicle repairs.

The JB Brown Fund has awarded about $1.5 million to residents since 2011.

“The JB Brown Fund changes lives and builds a better foundation for residents and their communities,” said USA Properties President Geoff Brown, whose father founded the company in 1981. “The JB Brown Fund is an investment in people and their incredible, unlimited potential.”
