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.

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.
