Our Approach

We are committed to confronting our country’s history of inequality and advocating for those who have been purposefully left without a seat at the table based on their race, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, or any other aspect of their identity. We support nonprofits shaping Brooklyn by and for the people by protecting and expanding legal rights and fearlessly challenging systemic oppressions.

Brooklyn Org provides holistic support and resources to nonprofits across the borough, from funding to capacity building, and more.
