Local giving goes further this holiday season with #BrooklynGives on Giving Tuesday! For 24 hours, Brooklyn Community Foundation will match donations to participating local nonprofits up to $100,000!

#BrooklynGives is celebrated the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, aka Giving Tuesday, the official kickoff of the charitable season. It’s Brooklyn’s only 24-hour Boroughwide giving event, encouraging Brooklyn residents and small businesses to come together to support Brooklyn’s outstanding nonprofits.

#BrooklynGives was created by Brooklyn Community Foundation in 2016 to benefit local organizations that are finalists for its annual Spark Prize—a unique nonprofit award that celebrates high-impact, values-driven service to Brooklyn’s communities. Learn more at SparkPrize.org
