Brooklyn Elders Fund Advisory Council
Through the Brooklyn Community Foundation’s Brooklyn Elders Fund, we seek to support organizations that are working to ensure that older adults in our borough have the opportunity and agency to achieve social and economic success via $500,000 in annual grant making. The Brooklyn Elders Fund Advisory Council (BEFAC) is an opportunity for older adults (ages 50+) to provide valuable contribution to our grant making through their expertise and lived experience. Commitment is expected to be up to 20 hours total. Advisers will be paid $400 for their participation. Our goal is to recognize and tap into Brooklyn community leaders committed to strengthening their neighborhoods and the borough.
