A Message to Our Grantees
We stand with you, today and every day.
You are lifelines and you are visionaries.
You protect, sustain, and empower our communities, while you lift up values, solutions, and roadmaps to propel us toward change.
For many of us, Tuesday’s decision opened the door to uncertainty and fear about what is to come.
Yet, in the face of fear and uncertainty
In the face of racial injustice
In the face of deep economic inequity
In the face of religious persecution
In the face of a changing climate
In the face of threats against our immigrant neighbors
You stand tall and we stand by your side.
Now more than ever, your work is critical to the strength of our Borough, our Nation, and our shared future.
We call on others to join us in making an investment in you and your outstanding work.
And going forward, we promise to become even louder advocates for you and your mission to fight for justice.
Our vision is a fair and just Brooklyn, where everyone has the opportunity to participate and prosper.
Achieving this starts with you.
On behalf of our entire team at Brooklyn Community Foundation, please know we stand in solidarity with you.
President & CEO
