What excites you about Brooklyn?

The creative energy that exists in the Borough, and the potential for continuing improvements in the opportunities and lives of all Brooklynites.

Why would you recommend opening a Donor Advised Fund with Brooklyn Community Foundation?

The Foundation provides excellent information about Brooklyn organizations which are doing particularly well as they serve the residents of Brooklyn and New York City.

What Brooklyn nonprofit do you recommend others learn more about?

Among the many Brooklyn organizations that I care about, The HOPE Program stands out for the effectiveness of its workforce development program, helping empower New Yorkers living in poverty to achieve economic self-sufficiency through employment and advancement. Because it takes a comprehensive approach with its adult students, HOPE graduates’ job retention rates are among the highest in the field.
