Read Our Summer 2012 Newsletter!

We’re pleased to share with you the latest newsletter from the Brooklyn Community Foundation, which features the story of our decade-plus investment in Red Hook—a dynamic community on the mend thanks to the dedication of visionary leaders and neighbors coming together to create change from the ground up.

We're immensely proud of our contribution to this transformation, giving donors a way to back the most effective strategies and programs at the frontlines of taking on Brooklyn's biggest challanges.

The story of Red Hook demonstrates the steady grassroots changes happening across our borough, led by neighborhood-centric nonprofits and institutions. 

It’s a model for how, with creativity, commitment, and cooperation, together we can make Brooklyn a stronger, more equitable home for all who live here.

As illustrated in the graphic below, our challenges as a borough are great, but our future is bright. With every boast comes an opportunity to build and leverage our successes for the betterment of the entire borough.
