Philanthropy

Social justice was a core value of Louis Brandeis, for who Brandeis University is named. The school makes a concerted effort to emulate this value through multiple service student clubs and service trips. In 2015 Brandeis University was ranked #1 in the country by the Princeton Review for student community service. It is with this in mind that BNC Westlake continues to carry on Brandeis’ legacy.

Dottie’s House

BNC Westlake has chosen to support Dottie’s House, an organization that supports survivors of domestic violence. They provide transitional housing for women and children, as well as counseling, employment assistance, and financial support. Our members prepare birthday boxes with small gifts for the children in order to brighten their time there.

Learn more about Dottie’s House here.
