Listening Tours

In 2022, under the leadership of our President and CEO Dr. Jocelynne Rainey and building on our commitment to community engagement, Brooklyn Community Foundation launched a new annual Listening Tour to visit neighborhoods across Brooklyn and meet with residents and leaders to learn about challenges facing the community and foster collaboration. 

In our first year, we held meetings in the following ten neighborhoods:

  • Bay Ridge​
  • Bedford-Stuyvesant​
  • Brownsville​
  • Bushwick​
  • Canarsie​
  • Coney Island​
  • Crown Heights​
  • East New York / Cypress Hills​
  • Flatbush / East Flatbush​
  • Sunset Park
