Change Starts Here: A Racially Just Future for Brooklyn

At Brooklyn Community Foundation, we have a critical role to play in mobilizing money and resources to dismantle systemic racism and repair centuries of devastation and injustice done to Black communities and other communities of color.

As part of our institutional commitment to racial justice, we are here to work with you to increase giving to Black-led and other people of color-led organizations working on the frontlines of the fight for social change.

Across our Community Fund grantmaking portfolios, close to 75% of grantee organizations are led by people of color. This is in stark contrast to an average of only 10% of philanthropic dollars currently invested in organizations led by Black, indigenous, and other people of color around the country.

Change Starts Here: We are guided by the belief that those who are closest to the challenges faced by our communities are closest to the solutions for our communities. Join us and invest in a racially just future for Brooklyn.
