"Brooklyn is where I grew up, spent my business career, and learned the importance of giving back. So it’s important to me that I keep my philanthropy rooted here. With my Fund at Brooklyn Community Foundation, I am able to support both the local and national causes I care about—plus the ease of giving through my Fund allows me to focus more fully on my personal approach to philanthropy."
