In less than five years, Brooklyn Community Foundation has impacted nearly every corner of our borough—from funding a recovery coalition in Gerritsen Beach to sustaining job training programs in Gowanus and helping emerging artists perform in Greenpoint.

Through hundreds of grants, we’ve built countless partnerships with residents, activists, civic leaders, foundations, and donors.

Next month, we will take our work to a new level based upon the results of our ambitious Brooklyn Insights project launched last January. 

We are developing a fresh perspective—thanks to the ideas and voices of nearly 1,000 Brooklyn residents—on how we can be a transformative force in the borough. We look forward to sharing our new vision with you in September.

As we move ahead, you’ll notice a few other changes – a new look for our website, a new @BklynFoundation handle on Twitter and Instagram, and in just a few weeks, a new address in Crown Heights, where we hope you’ll visit us!
