Ways to Give

Fund Your Passion

We have five Field of Interest funds that allow donors to give to their personalized interests: Arts for All, Caring Neighbors, Community Development, Education & Youth Achievement, and Green Communities. Donors can also choose to give “where it’s needed most” to support diverse needs and programs throughout Brooklyn. 

All contributions are 100% tax deductible. Pooled funds are administered by the Foundation. Experienced staff members review and vet hundreds of sector-based requests from Brooklyn nonprofits in order to ensure that your donation goes to support excellent, high-impact programs. At the end of each grant cycle, donors receive a list of local grants within their Field of Interest made through the collective power of their philanthropy.

Honor a Loved One

Our tribute gifts enable donors to make a contribution to the Foundation in honor of a special Brooklynite. A tribute makes a wonderful gift for the holidays, anniversaries, birthdays, or just to let someone know that you care about them and their community. You will receive a receipt acknowledging your tax-deductible donation and you can also elect to have the Foundation send a card to your loved one letting them know that a donation has been made in their name.
