Information is power. Information empowers.

The Brooklyn Community Foundation aims to improve lives and strengthen communities. We are a partner to residents, businesses, community organizations and civic leaders, working with them to make the Brooklyn we all love even better.

In addition to seeking out and garnering support for the best non-profit programs and new ideas in our borough, we invest in projects that generate essential information, to make Brooklyn’s 2.5 million residents more aware of key issues and challenges across the borough’s 71 distinct neighborhoods.

Brooklyn Trends is the first-ever in-depth view of the civic health of our borough and its 18 Community Districts; it is an incredibly valuable new resource for Brooklynites to measure quality of life in the place they call home.

As we analyze the indicators of Brooklyn’s civic health, we begin to identify trends that are shaping our borough’s growth and development. Brooklyn Trends not only illuminates the Foundation’s work, but also empowers Brooklynites to take on local challenges and create positive change from the ground up.
