Community Fund Donors

Donors help us spark lasting change in two ways: by co-investing in our Community Fund to fuel our strategic grants and leadership initiatives and by establishing Donor Advised Funds to increase the impact of their personal giving to vital nonprofits in Brooklyn and beyond. 

In 2015, donors contributed over $2.8 million to the Foundation, including $1 million to our Community Fund.
