#BrooklynGives: 1 Million Thanks!
Thank you for being part of #BrooklynGives on Giving Tuesday, powered by Brooklyn Community Foundation. Over 3,100 donors have contributed $1 million (and counting!) to 113 nonprofits at BrooklynGives.org. This is the most ever raised through the campaign, and proof of what is possible when you GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE!
Brooklyn Community Foundation staff celebrate Giving Tuesday at The Social
A Record-Breaking Giving Tuesday We created #BrooklynGives in 2016 to spotlight often-overlooked grassroots nonprofits on the frontlines of social change. Of the 113 nonprofits supported through this year's record-breaking campaign, 76% are led by people of color, 63% have annual operating budgets under $1 million, and 43% have fewer than 5 staff members.
- Congratulate the top fundraising nonprofits: Read 718, exalt, The Campaign Against Hunger, and Groundswell
- Treat yourself to a pint of Spread Love...the #BrooklynGives Way all month long at The Social in Prospect Heights
- See the winners of our $500 sponsored prizes, which were awarded up until midnight last night
- Help our Spark Prize Finalists maximize their $5,000 match before the December 3rd deadline
