Thanks for visiting our team's page!
This is a short excerpt about our fundraising charity to give you all some more information regarding all the great things that the Brooklyn Community Foundation is doing:
To improve the lives of people in Brooklyn by strengthening communities through local giving, grantmaking and community service. Values Access to opportunity is the key organizing principle of our work. The money we raise from the public supports 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 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 strive to collaborate, convene and communicate in ways that promote generosity, civic involvement, good public policy and caring for our neighbors and neighborhoods.
...And a little bit about our team :)
5 of the classiest Crossfitters in the NYC area... Janelle Rooks, Jess Fox, Ron Weissbard, Peter Hoppmann, and Mishik. This team has too many good things to talk about to fit it in this little box. We'll see you at the event, but you'll just see us kicking ass.
