The Earl and Anna Broady Foundation provided a $100,000 grant to TEAK to support college access and success for our Fellows. Earl Broady’s story is one of hard work and grit, starting as a janitor and working his way through law school and eventually become a Superior Court Judge in Los Angeles. Earl passed away in 1992 and when his wife Anna died in 2016, their trust established The Earl and Anna Broady Foundation.



Trustee of the Broady Foundation, Bettye Woodard, learned about TEAK from her son, Derek, a childhood friend of Teak Dyer (TEAK’s namesake) and Justine Stamen Arrillaga (TEAK founder). Derek has followed TEAK for years and when his mother joined the foundation he suggested that she reach out to us to learn more. TEAK was a perfect fit for the foundation’s mission and Earl Broady’s story is one that resonates with our Fellows.
