The Brooklyn Accelerator aims to connect community-based nonprofits to new donors and board members; sponsor nonprofit capacity-building and technical assistance services; provide training on equity, cultural competence, and anti-racism; and - using the Foundation's new office in Crown Heights - incubate and support promising local leaders and organizations.
