Brooklyn Accelerator

Explore the Brooklyn Accelerator


There are more than 3,000 nonprofits operating in Brooklyn, New York City’s largest borough, yet just 4% of all New York City philanthropic dollars go to Brooklyn organizations.

As the borough’s community foundation, we have an outstanding opportunity to develop an “Accelerator” to serve as the hub for Brooklyn’s charitable community and move the nonprofit sector forward by leveraging surrounding wealth, innovation, and creativity for social good.

Brooklyn Accelerator aims to increase expertise for the Foundation, nonprofits, local leaders, and donors through a variety of platforms that mobilize people, capital, and expertise.
