Last Chance to Join the Fight Gone Bad Fun, and a Note From Brooklyn Community Foundation
There are still a spots left for Fight Gone Bad, but the teams are currently being made, so THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE. REGISTER HERE
And while we’re at it, we’re going to share this lovely note we received from the Brooklyn Community Foundation, telling us all the great things they’ve done over the last year (and which the money we raised helped support!)…
Thank you CrossFit South Brooklyn for partnering with us on your Fight Gone Bad fundraiser for the 4th year running! Brooklyn Community Foundation is on a mission to spark lasting social change, mobilizing people, capital, and expertise for a fair and just Brooklyn. Since our founding in 2009, the Foundation and our donors have provided over $20 million in grants to more than 300 nonprofits throughout the borough, bolstering vital programs and services while responding to urgent community needs and opportunities to fuel community-led change.
This year, we plan to distribute a total of $3 million in grants across three distinct areas:
- Invest in Youth: Creating better opportunities and a stronger future for Brooklyn’s next generation;
- Neighborhood Strength: Fostering community leadership and identity in Crown Heights;
- Brooklyn Accelerator: A hub for strengthening Brooklyn’s vibrant nonprofit sector.
Highlights from 2015 so far include the launch of the Brooklyn Youth Fellowship supporting 10-month fellowships for young people at 12 youth-serving organizations, a Restorative Justice Project in partnership with four public schools in Brooklyn and the Mayor’s Leadership Team on School Climate and Discipline, and an Incubator Project for Brooklyn nonprofits. Visit bcfny.org to learn more about all of our work.
Thank you all again (and good luck!).
