What Happens When Brooklyn Backs Brooklyn
Brooklyn Org is thrilled to invite you to be part of the bold evolution of Brooklyn Community Foundation: a new approach to local philanthropy that serves as a platform and a partner for all Brooklyn communities, to come together to create a place where everyone thrives.
Brooklyn Org builds on our proud 15-year history during which we moved over $100M to nonprofits in partnership with donors like you, while driving critical community action on racial justice, youth development, supporting older adults, COVID-19, immigrant rights, and more, when our neighbors needed it most.
We know that Brooklyn is home to innovative and dedicated changemakers—including nearly a third of all New York City nonprofits. Yet Brooklyn organizations receive less than 8% of charitable contributions citywide. This is why our work is so critical: Brooklyn, the city’s largest borough, deserves more.
At Brooklyn Org, we believe that through our collective love for our communities, our unmatched resources, and infinite ideas—we can not only build a better future for all Brooklynites, we can make Brooklyn a beacon for the world.
Being part of Brooklyn Org means that you are powering essential, life-changing nonprofits working in communities across the borough that are often overlooked and under-resourced. Your support enables us to connect with communities to understand their unique challenges and invest in solutions.
Receiving this support from Brooklyn Org was incredibly special for our organization because it elevated our profile and helped people learn more about our work. This long-term investment helped us to focus more time and energy on our critical work for New Yorkers.Alyssa Aguilera, Co-Executive Director, VOCAL-NY
Community is at the center of our work, making it possible for us to back over 100 trusted, high-impact organizations each year working for every Brooklynite—focused on critical issues like food insecurity, housing, economic opportunity, justice reform, and more.
This is a movement for Brooklyn—and Brooklyn needs you. Join us today by making a donation and investing in the promise of Brooklyn.
Together, let’s show what can happen when Brooklyn Backs Brooklyn.
