The Bronx Community Foundation is the first and only community foundation in The Bronx, solely dedicated to delivering resources to the entirety of the borough. The Foundation supports and invests in community power to eradicate inequity and build sustainable futures for all Bronxites.
In 2020, The Foundation launched its first major initiative, The Bronx Community Relief Effort. This effort raised and deployed over $10 million in rapid response resources in The Bronx. The Foundation brought together a borough wide group of Bronxites and community leaders to determine how best to provide much needed resources such as food, technology, grants/technical assistance to housing organizations and small businesses, and cash cards to students/residents along with emergency supplies throughout our entire borough. This was all done via a volunteer effort!
