Insights to Impact

The Latest from Brooklyn Community Foundation


Brooklyn In This Moment: A Briefing By Brooklyn Community Foundation

Earlier this year, Brooklyn Community Foundation launched a Listening Tour to visit ten neighborhoods across Brooklyn and meet with residents and leaders to learn about challenges facing the community and foster collaboration. We recently concluded this tour, and are now sharing what we learned from these community conversations.

In the webinar below, our President & CEO Dr. Jocelynne Rainey and CEO & President of LoriLu Consulting Lori Luis, our partner on this project, share key insights from each neighborhood, top issue areas across the borough, and opportunities for investment and long-term change.
