Special Initiatives

In addition to our Core Programs, the Foundation takes on special initiatives to respond to unique challenges and opportunities across Brooklyn.

Immigrant Rights Fund

Immigrant Rights Fund was created by Foundation donors following the 2016 Presidential election to support both the immediate and long-term needs of immigrants in our borough and across New York City. 

Racial Equity Fund

The Racial Equity Fund is an ambitious $1 million campaign to advance racial justice in Brooklyn. 

Girls of Color Fund

The Girls of Color Fund supports the Foundation’s ongoing involvement in the NYC Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color, grantmaking to organizations serving young women of color through the Foundation’s Invest in Youth portfolio, and the upcoming launch of a strategic leadership effort around a critical issue facing girls of color that will advance policy change.
