Programs & Impact

Brooklyn Community Foundation works hand-in-hand with community leaders, nonprofits, and donors to spark lasting social change for a fair and just Brooklyn. Since 2009, we have invested more than $50 million in over 300 organizations through our Community Fund grantmaking, strategic leadership initatives, and Donor Advised Funds.

In alignment with our institution-wide Racial Justice lens, we center the voices of communities in our decision-making and prioritize support for communities of color. In addition to providing general operating support to community-led nonprofit organizations, the Foundation assists grantees with capacity building in the following areas: racial justice, fundraising, strategic communications, board development, executive transition, financial management, advocacy, direct action, community organization, and leadership development.
