In our new annual Impact Report, we want to introduce you to our Brooklyn approach to philanthropy aimed at racial justice and community-led change, as told through the voices of our partners who are critical to this work.
It’s always a best practice to keep complete, accurate, and up-to-date tax records, with special care given to tracking your charitable giving. Establishing a fund with us is an easy way you can organize and track your charitable giving in one place.
If you’ve not yet considered establishing a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) at Brooklyn Community Foundation to organize your charitable giving, you may be missing out. And if you’re already using a DAF at the Foundation to organize your giving, it never hurts to review the benefits of having your fund with us.
Philanthropy means a “love of humanity”—in the sense of caring, nourishing, developing, and enhancing “what it is to be human” for both donors and the groups they want to support. As Brooklyn’s community foundation, we’re here to help you make that connection to explore ways to give in your community, your way.
Understanding the ideal mix of charitable activities based on your social impact personality type—investor, connector or activator—can be useful as you decide how to spread love in your community. Whatever your type, our team can help you reach your goals.
As donors grow more in tune with social impact, they are looking to structure and plan their charitable giving around the causes that they are passionate about, and are considering ways to incorporate philanthropy into financial and estate plans.
