If you live, work, or visit Downtown Brooklyn often, this past year you might have:
- Boogied with Talib Kweli at the Grove Alley Silent Disco
- Logged onto the free Downtown Brooklyn WiFi Network
- Shaken your groove thang at a Bust a Move Dance Night

- Heard Garrett Oliver, Brooklyn Brewery’s Brewmaster, speak at the 5x10 Talks
- Picked up some fresh organic veggies at the Albee Square Farmers Market
- Networked at the Make It In Brooklyn Innovation Summit
- Grabbed lunch from a food truck at MetroTech and dined al fresco sitting in one of our Street Seats
- Stopped to smell the 40,000 flowers planted in the neighborhood
- Gone Back to the Future at our Throwback Thursday Movie Nights
- Oohed and aahed the Downtown Brooklyn holiday lighting display
All of these events happening in your backyard in Downtown Brooklyn have one thing in common – us!
For those who may not know, the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership is a 501(c)(3) whose mission is to help ensure that our neighborhood is a vibrant place where residents are proud to live, work, and play. Your year end donation can make an even bigger impact in the neighborhood.
Where Your Money Goes
Your tax-free donation helps support fun programming like our Grove Alley nights, family-friendly BK Block parties, and Downtown Brooklyn Nights events with free music, film, and dance events we put on all year long.
You will also be supporting things you might not even think about, like keeping sidewalks and medians clean; street sweeping; snow removal; and installing lighting, bike racks, and benches.
Donations also help keep Downtown Brooklyn on the cutting edge where it belongs. Our Make It in Brooklyn Innovation Summit, the 5x10 Talks, and Startup Pitch Contests ensure that our neighborhood is the epicenter of innovation and entrepreneurship in the borough.
When you give, you help keep Downtown Brooklyn online as well. We provide WiFi to 40,000+ users per month on the Downtown Brooklyn Free WiFi Network. Our team also works tirelessly to list every local shop, restaurant, bar, and cultural organization on our website, along with current event happenings in the neighborhood so locals and tourists alike can explore all there is to do here.
Consider giving back this holiday season to make sure we keep culture, community, innovation, and fun going all year round #inyourbackyard here in Downtown Brooklyn.
