To support the Brooklyn Recovery Fund, a joint effort between the Brooklyn Community Foundation, the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President, and the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, to create a pooled fund to provide support to Brooklyn’s nonprofit organizations working with the communities and individuals most affected by Hurricane Sandy.
In October 2009, the Brooklyn Community Foundation launched as the only community foundation dedicated exclusively to the people of Brooklyn. The Foundation improves the lives of people in Brooklyn by strengthening communities through local giving, grantmaking and community service.
