Each of the 20 finalists will receive a $5,000 matching grant from Brooklyn Community Foundation as part of the local giving campaign Brooklyn Gives on Giving Tuesday, November 27, 2018—the annual national day of giving observed the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
A diverse committee of Brooklyn civic, business, and neighborhood leaders selected the 20 finalists from a highly competitive pool of 130 applicants in recognition of their social justice-oriented, values-driven service to the borough’s communities.
In January, the five winners of this year’s Spark Prize will be awarded grants of $100,000 each.
