ABOUT BROOKLYN COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

Founded in 2009, Brooklyn Community Foundation is the first and only public foundation dedicated solely to New York City’s largest borough and its charitable community. The Foundation works in partnership with generous donors and community leaders to invest in organizations driving racial justice and community-led change.

With a commitment to create a fair and just Brooklyn built on dignity and respect, the Foundation strives to ensure that all residents have the opportunity to participate and prosper. Through its grants and support, the Foundation seeks to mobilize people, capital, and expertise by collaborating with local leaders and leveraging expertise.

With revenue earned from an increasingly successful annual fundraising program as well as funds from its discretionary endowment, the Foundation manages a robust strategic grantmaking program promoting racial justice. Brooklyn Community Foundation also oversees more than 100 component funds including Donor Advised Funds and Field of Interest Funds designed to improve the quality of life throughout the borough. With assets of approximately $100 million, the Foundation dispersed $12 million in grants in 2020 including $5 million from Donor-Advised Funds and $7 million from the strategic Community Fund and designated COVID response grants.
