Founded in 1981, the Buffalo Renaissance Foundation (BRF) is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to moving Buffalo forward, to help our future generations realize the best opportunities to enjoy a high quality of life in Western New York. Our fundraising events have become valued traditions, especially our Annual Golf Classic – the second oldest charitable tournament in Buffalo. And our yearly Speaker Forums and Annual Spring Luncheon are proven tools to organize public dialogue about critical issues that impact Western New York.

For a better understanding of who we are, we welcome you to familiarize yourself with our history and board of directors.
