Grants of up to $50,000 per year to Brooklyn, New York nonprofit organizations with programs that assist older adults for general operating support. Applicants must submit an LOI before applying. Funding is intended for organizations that align with the following focus areas: keeping older adults in their homes, promoting elder's rights, and allowing access to entitlements and benefits.
For more information about the priority focus areas and priority considerations, see the URL for Full Text link below.
The Foundation believes in providing long-term investment and support to organizations that are doing transformative work in Brooklyn, particularly groups that have been under-resourced by traditional channels of philanthropy.
Brooklyn Elders Fund aims to tackle significant structural barriers to access and opportunities for adults over 50 years of age, particularly those who live with the realities of multiple oppressions or burdens.
The initiative emphasizes community leadership, with a focus on historically under-resourced neighborhoods and immigrant communities. The Foundation also supports policy and advocacy efforts directed at increasing the rights and benefits of older Brooklynites, including supporting relevant research and evaluation.
Among other considerations, Brooklyn Elders Fund will prioritize support for organizations who work towards the systemic redistribution of power, opportunities, and access for people of all races so that they are equally seen, heard, valued, and respected.
In addition to general operating support, the Foundation provides capacity building support in the following areas: racial justice, fundraising, strategic communications, board development, executive transition, financial management, advocacy, direct action, community organization, and leadership development.
