Public Education: We tell the BRAC story in the United States and beyond through social and traditional media, speaking engagements and word of mouth. We engage interns, volunteers and friends of BRAC to act as ambassadors of our work, telling the story of BRAC’s success in their own communities to mobilize support. We join and launch education campaigns and advocate for better international development, human rights and environment policies.

Strategic and Programme Services: We help BRAC to pilot, grow and innovate microfinance, health, education, livelihood development and other programs by: enabling access to capital and other resources, providing technical assistance and program design support, setting up internal systems and processes for successful implementation and monitoring, and communicating outcomes with investors, donors and stakeholders. 

Grantmaking: To support BRAC’s new and ongoing initiatives, BRAC USA makes catalytic grants to BRAC programs with the funds it raises. . It supports a strategic agenda based on priorities agreed upon by BRAC and the BRAC USA Board. Its grant-making program facilitates flexibility, innovation, entrepreneurship, creativity, and learning. BRAC USA does not accept unsolicited proposals from organizations that are not part of BRAC or BRAC International
