Brian Holland LegacyFoundation

$5,355 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 40 people in 8 months
Brian Holland was a community leader, an industry professional, a confidant, friend, and master of guidance and positivity. He was not only a citizen of Asbury Park, he was a citizen of the world. Brian LOVED, MENTORED, TAUGHT, and his KINDNESS was far-reaching and had no borders.

Brian was the cornerstone of our community and culture. Throughout his life, with us, Brian has elevated us all every day to be better versions of ourselves, to care for every human being, and to never forget to laugh.

The beauty of Brian's life was that his family, and friends, all say the exact same things:. Brian was a selfless person who would sacrifice his time, energy, and money to charitable causes all across Asbury Park. He was an advocate for those whose voice wasn't loud enough to reach the platforms that could make a difference. In meetings, conversations, discussions, and events Brian spoke up for those who could not speak for themselves.

He forced everyone around him to see that the world in which we live in is not black or white, but filled with beautiful moments of color that we all need to take a step back and enjoy.

He is why we built this important foundation.


The Three Pillars of Our Work
In honor of Brian’s life and legacy, we are dedicated to showing our support in three major areas of impact.

LGBTQ EQUALITY AND SUPPORT
We support causes that fight for LGBTQ equality and provide support to the community. We will raise funds and awareness on LGBTQ issues in New Jersey. In 2018 and 2019 all donations will directly go to New Jersey’s Garden State Equality.

EDUCATION
Brian was a teacher, not in the traditional sense, but he taught and impacted many lives every day. We will partner with local schools, theaters, and anti-bullying groups and give them financial support and other resources to help further their impact and reach. 

THE “LEAVE A LEGACY” AWARD
The Leave a Legacy Award will celebrate the success and accomplishments of people still with us and those who have passed. This person is someone that always sees the brighter side of life and lives the best version of themselves each day; someone works without borders and makes a lasting impact on every person that they encounter - like Brian!

Nominations will be accepted and awards will be presented at our Annual Legacy Ball. Donations will be made in honor of the recipients to organizations and causes that they support or supported.
