Tribute & Memorial Funds
Brooklyn Community Foundation’s Memorial & Tribute Fund options are an ideal way to honor the memory of a loved one or commemorate a life milestone, such as a wedding, bar mitzvah, or the birth of a child.
There is no minimum to open a Memorial or Tribute Fund. With Memorial and Tribute Funds, you have one year to increase your Fund balance to at least $5,000 or grant the funds to a charity or charities of your choice. The Foundation can also set up an online donation page on our website in order to collect contributions from friends and family.
