Thank you to all who joined us on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 for #GivingTuesday in partnership with the Brooklyn Community Foundation’s #BrooklynGives Campaign to encourage Brooklynites to “Give Where You Live.”
During this ongoing global health crisis, as unemployment rates rise, medical debt grows, future incomes become increasingly uncertain, foreclosures loom, consumer scams escalate, domestic violence rates rise, and more and more of our vulnerable community members consider life planning options, the VLP’s services are more essential than ever.
Contributions – at any level – will have an immediate and significant impact on the VLP’s ability to rapidly respond to the growing needs of our community.

Thanks to the generosity of the VLP Giving Day Match Circle, from Tuesday November 24th – Tuesday, December 31st, donations to our #GivingTuesday #BrooklynGives campaign up to $7,000 will be matched, dollar for dollar by VLP board members!

Get social and #UNselfie with us:
The #UNselfie, or the selfless selfie, is a powerful way to show how and why you are giving. Thank you to all who shared their #Unselfie on #GivingTuesday with help from the VLP #GivingTuesday #BrooklynGives Toolkit.
Please keep those messages of support coming as we head into our final push of our year-end campaign! Take a “selfie” to share your story. Add the hashtags #UNselfie #BrooklynGives #BrooklynVLPrapidresponse. Tag @BrooklynVLP and post to Twitter, Instagram or share on Facebook.
