Donor Advised Funds

Economic justice is racial justice - and a Donor Advised Fund is a unique tool that can help you mobilize critical resources to support grassroots nonprofits at the forefront of lasting social change.

We are pleased to join the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy’s call to action among community foundations to commit to funding Black communities, at a minimum, equal to their representation in our overall population. 

 

2020 was a year of extraordinary grassroots generosity, enabling us to distribute $12.7 million to nonprofits, breaking all Foundation records. The remarkable scale and urgency of this grantmaking to address overwhelming community need was made possible by over 3,000 donors, also a milestone for our institution.

As we enter the remaining weeks of 2020, this could be an important time to open a Donor Advised Fund with Brooklyn Community Foundation to maximize your giving to essential nonprofits in 2021 and beyond.
