With your continued support, we will grow our investment in these critical community-led organizations on the frontlines of social change. We are a borough of changemakers, and together we can—and must—do more.
Brooklyn Community Foundation is committed to building the capacity of nonprofits across the borough — and we are thrilled to announce an open application to join our Leadership Collective, which will be led by our partner consultant Brooke Richie-Babbage. Leaders will have access to our bi-weekly group coaching, training library, workshops, and related resources over a period of six months beginning in mid-January 2023.
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.
