Byron and Margaret Brown Field of Interest Endowment Fund

Margaret Brown established a Field of Interest Fund at the Community Foundation to support developmentally disabled individuals and programs in Weld County. She has a passion in her determination to help families dealing with developmental disabilities to access community services.

Margaret is a unique, level-headed, professional community advocate, with a knack for business and accounting. She and her late husband, Byron Brown, were the parents of twin developmentally disabled, autistic sons (Mark and Scott) who now in their mid-fifties, live independently in their own homes in Greeley.

Margaret was one of the individuals who started the ARC of Weld County and served on that board for many years. During that time and continuing after she left, she also served on the board of ARC of Colorado. Margaret was instrumental over the years in advocating for the developmentally disabled on the local level and with the state legislature.

At 90+ years young, Margaret is a wonderful example of how life can be lived and how you can turn your passion into a legacy through the Community Foundation
