Alan Brainerd

A Passion for Design and Philanthropy

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alan E. Brainerd who has served on our Board of Directors for several years. Alan has always had a passion for charitable work both here and in St. Louis where he lived prior to moving to West Palm Beach. Alan was a very talented Interior Designer and was instrumental in selecting the theme for our 2020 Gala where each table was designed by a different designer. We express our gratitude for having him be a part of our CCE family, and our sympathy to his family, especially his husband Kenny, and all of his many friends.

“CCE provided phenomenal integrated art instruction the teachers still rave about. It’s impossible to measure the impact this will have going forward.”

Dr. Ruth Duran, Family Central

“Private schools have been trying to integrate the arts for 100 years. And in one year CCE has done it!”

Robert Goldberg, Head of The Benjamin School

"Not only was I able to work on a project that I loved, but I had full access to professional equipment, which made my experience even better."
