About Us

The JB Brown Fund is named after USA Properties Fund founder J.B. Brown.

Throughout his life, J.B.’s love of learning was never extinguished. He was a devoted lover of history and he could hold listeners spellbound with his mastery of facts, dates and geography.

Upon passing the mantle of leadership of his company to his son, Geoff, he attended graduate history courses at Sacramento State as part of his ongoing quest for knowledge. By establishing the JB Brown Fund in partnership with LifeSTEPS, Geoff Brown is further promoting his father’s love of learning through academic scholarships.

Initially started  as an academic scholarship, the fund has  grown to include sports scholarships, rental assistance and support for older adults.

Together, we can share the same dream of a better tomorrow … for everyone.

“We're about a lot more than building apartment communities – we build communities and help families and individuals achieve their goals,” says Geoff Brown, president of USA Properties in Roseville. “We want to help our residents as much as possible, especially when they are taking extraordinary steps to improve their lives.”
