Race & History Challenge Grant

Double your impact today with a donation.

This spring Brooklyn Historical Society invites you to join BHS Trustee Sylvia Wong Lewis and her husband, Byron – along with several Trustees – in supporting our commitment to reveal the central role of race, identity, and inequality in shaping Brooklyn’s history. This special Challenge Grant will match all gifts made during our spring fundraising appeal, up to $25,000.
