Celebrating Black Philanthropy Month with Ingrid Benedict

Brooklyn Community Foundation is proud to celebrate Black Philanthropy Month by highlighting leaders within our own organization—and we encourage you to follow the hashtag #bpm2022 on social media and pledge your support for Black-led nonprofits across Brooklyn!
Our Board Member Ingrid Benedict, Director of the Daphne Foundation, shared with us her thoughts on the meaning of philanthropy and the opportunity it provides for community engagement:

"Philanthropy is the recognition of our fundamental human interdependence. Every day, community members and leaders in our borough take action to support a racially just and thriving Brooklyn, and philanthropy offers you the opportunity to join in that collective work."
