Special Initiatives

In addition to our Core Programs, the Foundation takes on special initiatives to respond to unique challenges and opportunities across Brooklyn.

Immigrant Rights Fund

Immigrant Rights Fund is an immediate and long-term response to mounting uncertainty and fear within Brooklyn’s immigrant communities, combined with troubling reports of xenophobic and racist attacks nationwide, and in anticipation of dangerous and exclusionary government policies. 

Racial Equity Fund

The Racial Equity Fund is an ambitious $1 million campaign to advance racial justice in Brooklyn. 

Girls of Color Fund

The Girls of Color Fund supports the Foundation’s ongoing involvement in the NYC Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color, grantmaking to organizations serving young women of color through the Foundation’s Invest in Youth portfolio, and the upcoming launch of a strategic leadership effort around a critical issue facing girls of color that will advance policy change.
