Programs & Impact

With the generous support of our donors, Brooklyn Community Foundation leads special programmatic initiatives and awards critical grants to back effective and innovative local nonprofit organizations.
Since 2009, we have awarded more than $20 million through our unrestricted grantmaking, to over 300 organizations working in every neighborhood in our borough. Additionally, our donor advised fund holders direct hundreds of grants each year, boosting the capacity of a diverse range of local nonprofits supporting our communities.   
Brooklyn Community Foundation works hand-in-hand with local leaders, experts, and donors to spark lasting social change for a more just and fair Brooklyn.
