VLP #GivingTuesday #BrooklynGives Campaign

Join us on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 for #GivingTuesday in partnership with the Brooklyn Community Foundation’s #BrooklynGives to encourage Brooklynites to “Give Where You Live.” Visit the VLP’s campaign page to learn more.

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.

Your contribution – 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 1st, donations to our #GivingTuesday #BrooklynGives campaign up to $7,000 will be matched, dollar for dollar by VLP board members!
