Big Red Athletic Foundation



About BRAF

The Big Red Athletic Foundation is a Non-Profit Corporation under the Non-Profit Corporation Law of the State of Mississippi.   The Foundation is organized exclusively for charitable purposes and qualifies as an exempt organization under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

The Foundation is organized for the following purposes:  1)  To work toward improving all athletic programs within the Biloxi School District in cooperation with the Biloxi high School Athletic Department.  2)  To create an environment that promotes excellence in athletics for the Biloxi School district.  3)  To provide incentives for all programs whose teams succeed at the district, regional, and state level of competition.

The Big Red Athletic Foundation was founded in 2010 to work with the Biloxi Public Schools Athletic Department to promote excellence in athletics for all sports programs between grades 7 and 12. We work with the Athletic Department to help create an environment in which student athletes can compete at the highest level. Our mission is to provide each athlete with his or her best opportunity to earn an athletic scholarship to a school of higher education so they can further their education and enjoyment of athletics.

Our goal is to build continuing endowment that will help support all Biloxi Public Schools athletic programs, now and in the future, through the use of grants for items that are beyond what the school district or a booster club is able to provide. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation; so your contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible.
