Mission & Values
Brooklyn Community Foundation Mission
To improve the lives of people in Brooklyn by strengthening communities through local giving, grantmaking, and community service.
Brooklyn Community Foundation Values
Access to opportunity is the key organizing principle of our work. The funds we raise from the public support projects and programs that create opportunities for economic and social progress—for our people and our neighborhoods.
Facts and research-based information about Brooklyn, its people, and its institutions are critical components of our work. The Community Foundation’s grants, activities, and initiatives respond to demonstrated needs.
Through a competitive grants process, we support innovative, creative, and efficient nonprofit organizations that clearly articulate missions and goals and that can prove successful at meeting the needs of Brooklyn families, individuals, and neighborhoods.
Brooklyn Community Foundation is a partnership: of donors, nonprofit groups and civic leaders, and all those that care about Brooklyn. We collaborate, convene, and communicate in ways that promote generosity, civic involvement, good public policy, and caring for our neighbors and neighborhoods.
