Effective August 1, 2014 the Hope Recihbach Fund is no longer administrated by Brooklyn Community Foundation. Please visit HopeForBrooklyn.com to make a donation and learn more.
The Hope Reichbach Fund provides scholarships for young adults in Brooklyn participating in summer internships dedicated to public service and community organizing. It was created in memory of Hope Reichbach, a young Brooklyn public servant who passed away on April 28, 2011.
The program supports college students who embody the values Hope stood for but do not have the means to fund their own summer learning experiences. It facilitates internships with Brooklyn organizations involved in community issues and activism and creates mentorship opportunities and a network of contacts for interns, enhancing their career development.
