Brooklyn Community Foundation is the first and only foundation solely dedicated to New York City’s largest borough. It is on a mission to spark lasting social change, mobilizing people, capital, and expertise for a fair and just Brooklyn.
Since its founding in 2009, Brooklyn Community Foundation has provided over $25 million in grants to more than 300 nonprofits through its Community Fund and Donor Advised Fund program. The Foundation’s innovative community-led approach stems from Brooklyn Insights, a project that engaged nearly 1,000 residents across Brooklyn whose ideas resulted in three core strategies focused on Youth, Neighborhoods, and the Nonprofit Sector. In 2015, the Foundation won the prestigious Impact Award from the National Committee for Response Philanthropy in honor of this work.
