About Us

We Spark Change. 


We are on a mission to spark lasting social change, mobilizing people, capital and expertise for a fair and just Brooklyn.


Brooklyn Community Foundation is the first and only public foundation solely dedicated to Brooklyn’s charitable community. 

Our grantmaking and community leadership programs are informed by a long track record of philanthropic excellence. Since our founding in 2009, the Foundation and our donors have provided over $20 million in grants to more than 300 nonprofits throughout the borough, bolstering vital programs and services while responding to urgent community needs and opportunities to fuel community-led change.
