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.
