Why Brooklyn Community Foundation?
Using the Foundation to organize our giving is really helpful, from a bookkeeping point of view. The Foundation’s research and knowledge of Brooklyn also make it a great sounding board from a nonprofit and philanthropic standpoint.
What do you love about Brooklyn?
I love the languages of Brooklyn. When I lived in Sunset Park, I really loved hearing the kids speaking different languages while they were playing hockey together in the street.
What Brooklyn organizations inspire you?
Red Hook Initiative, New York Writers Coalition and Brooklyn Community Bail Fund.
