Brooklyn Accelerator

Brooklyn Accelerator is a hub for information, idea exchange, and gathering of philanthropic resources. Among its many roles, Brooklyn Accelerator seeks to connect donors and nonprofits; sponsor capacity-building efforts and technical assistance services; provide training on equity, cultural competence and anti-racism; and—using the Foundation’s office space in Crown Heights—incubate and support promising local leaders and organizations.

Accelerating Impact

The Spark Prize 

Each year, we will recognize trailblazing Brooklyn organizations that demonstrate the creativity, diversity, and scope of the borough’s nonprofit sector.

Accelerating New Ideas

Incubator Project

Each year, we will incubate up to three small, innovative organizations by providing free co-working space in our new office, technical assistance, trainings, and a $5,000 stipend for start-up costs.
