The Community Fund helps the Brooklyn Foundation carry out its vision for a fair and just Brooklyn. It's the first and only public foundation solely dedicated to Brooklyn’s charitable community, working in partnership with donors and community leaders to bolster vital nonprofits, strengthen neighborhoods, and increase opportunities for youth. The community fund is a flexible source of support for the Foundation’s strategic initiatives, grantmaking, and leadership activities. It enables the Foundation to effectively respond to the needs of Brooklyn over time, in partnership with dedicated donors and stakeholders on the frontlines of social change.
