Thanks to you, #BrooklynGives on Giving Tuesday is quickly becoming the most generous day of the year in Brooklyn as more and more donors pledge to give where they live and support the nonprofits that help our communities grow stronger and thrive.  

Head to BrooklynGives.org to explore all of yesterday's results on the #BrooklynGives Leaderboard. Congrats to Exalt Youth for being the top fundraising organization with nearly $38,000 raised, and to Atlas:DIY for the most individual donors at 172!

The excitement doesn't stop here...

In early January, we will announce the 5 nonprofits selected for this year's Spark Prize. Each will receive a "no strings attached" grant of $100,000 and will be honored at our Spark Prize Celebration breakfast on February 8th. We hope you will join us. 

We are so grateful to our lead #BrooklynGives sponsor TD Bank as well as National Grid, and to our partners at the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President and the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerceespecially the Young BK Professionals for hosting the #BrooklynGives Last Call fundraiser!
