Brooklyn’s Incubator Project backs local nonprofits driving racial justice



ImpactAlpha, July 12 — Brooklyn is a diverse borough, made up of people of color, immigrants and other minority groups. Since 2015, the Brooklyn Community Foundation has supported the growth of local, upstart nonprofits driving racial justice through its Incubator Project.

The incubator has now outgrown the foundation. To house this year’s cohort of six organizations, the foundation teamed with coworking center Brooklyn Creative League. Among the cohort: Documented, a nonprofit news website committed to educating immigrants on immigration policies; BlackSpace, a community of local African-American professionals building and preserving black communities; and the Women’s Organizing Network, which advances the leadership of women organizers, particularly women of color.

“We believe in community residents,” the foundation’s Amy Chou told ImpactAlpha. “We’re relying on our community leaders to tell us what they need.” Each organization receives seed funding and 18 months of free access to Brooklyn Creative League’s space.
