Donor Advised Funds: Working for Brooklyn

July 24, 2014

We are pleased to announce that Brooklyn Community Foundation fund holders directed over $200,000 in grants—more than 90% going to Brooklyn nonprofits—during the first half of 2014, marking a tenfold increase over the same period last year.

Moreover, since January, Foundation supporters have committed or pledged an additional $1.8 million through our new Donor Advised Fund Program.

From Giving Circles to Memorial Funds, Donor Advised Funds at Brooklyn Community Foundation are a smart, flexible vehicle for personal and family philanthropy. Created with a single tax-deductible gift, fund holders select the charities they want to support, at their own pace, and we manage the rest.
