Unlock $10,000 in Nonprofit Prizes

This year, we are thrilled to provide $10,000 in sponsored prizes for participating #BrooklynGives nonprofits starting at midnight tonight!

Prizes of $500 and $1,000 are designed to drive additional support to grassroots organizations led by Black, Indigenous, and other leaders of color, as well as grant recipients of the Brooklyn COVID-19 Response Fund.

Winners will be announced during our Giving Tuesday live stream, viewable at, and on our Facebook and YouTube pages:

  • 9:30-10AM: Spotlight on Black-led Nonprofits

  • 12:30-1PM: Brooklyn COVID-19 Response Fund Grantees

  • 3:30-4PM: Unique #BrooklynGives Campaigns + P2P Fundraisers

Prizes awarded outside of these times will be announced on our Instagram and Twitter pages. 

Can't Decide Where To Give?

#BrooklynGives is a terrific opportunity to discover new nonprofits. But if you're short on time, you can make a donation to Brooklyn Community Foundation and we will ensure your gift goes far.

Each year, in partnership with our generous donors, we direct over $4 million in unrestricted grantmaking to vital nonprofits across the borough through our Community Fund. Your donation will continue the critical work of our Brooklyn COVID-19 Response Fund, as well as our investment in young leaders, the fight for immigrant rights, and much more
