Your partnership helped make 2022 an incredible year for Brooklyn Community Foundation and our communities. With your support, we distributed a landmark $15.6 million to nonprofits through our Community Fund and Donor Advised Fund programs last year—surpassing our previous grantmaking record for Brooklyn Community Foundation and bringing our total grantmaking since our founding in 2009 to over $90 million!

As we usher in a new year of community-led change, we are proud to share some of the many highlights of the past twelve months:

When people from across our community can share in the joy of philanthropy, everyone wins. As we dive into the new year, we wanted to share a few stories of altruism that we’ve particularly enjoyed, which we think are worth checking out if you happened to miss them.

If you already have a DAF, you can transfer it to Brooklyn Community Foundation, where our 1% management fee supports grants to nonprofits working for racial justice in Brooklyn and our investment options offer the potential to grow your fund, tax-free.

Funded by $1.2 million from Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Greenwood Initiative and Donor Advised Funds at Brooklyn Community Foundation, this new Community Scholarship utilizes NYC Kids RISE’s Save for College Program as a community- driven wealth-building platform and is the largest Community Scholarship in the Program's history.

After an arduous and dangerous journey to the United States, many asylum seekers are now being sent to New York City. As a sanctuary city, New York has long been a welcoming home for those seeking refuge. However, our city and its institutions were not yet prepared for the influx arriving daily.
