4 Ways to Give


1. Community Fund

Donating to our Community Fund helps the Foundation carry out its ambitious vision to advance community-led change across Brooklyn through the vital work of local nonprofit organizations and neighborhood leaders.

Learn more and donate to the Community Fund. 


2. Establish a Fund

Opening a Donor Advised Fund with a tax-deductible gift of cash or stock is the most efficient way to support the organizations you care about (in Brooklyn and beyond) through one simple channel. Our Donor Advised Fund program is informed by years of philanthropic leadership and local grantmaking experience, making it the natural choice for donors who want to strengthen Brooklyn’s communities today and the future.

3. Create a Legacy

We offer many options for families to establish a permanent philanthropic legacy in Brooklyn through bequests, endowment funds, and other estate planning vehicles. Contact Vice President of Development Alex Villari to discuss your options.
