The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Committee supports the Chamber's initiatives in service to the membership and the entire Brooklyn community. 

The Chamber's most critical need now is to raise funds for its community-driven, no-interest, recovery loan program, specifically designed for small, local businesses who aren't getting the help they need through this pandemic. With 65% earmarked for Minority and/or Women-owned Business Enterprises, we're committed to supporting groups that have been shut out of most loan opportunities. This is a difficult time for Brooklyn businesses and communities. Our Mom and Pop shops are hurting and we want to see them return to their vibrant former selves. Please help us save them by donating whatever you can to our campaign. Every dollar counts!

We Need to Help the Businesses We Love,

Before They are Gone Forever.

The COVID-19 pandemic has decimated our community - especially the neighborhood businesses that we rely on. These are the businesses that fuel our daily lives — the ones that make Brooklyn, BROOKLYN.  Our local businesses are in trouble, and they need our support NOW to survive.

The COVID-19 Impact on Small Businesses

Thousands of our local businesses — entrepreneurs, minority/women and immigrant-owned businesses — have been shut out of many loan programs. This is why the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce designed this non-profit fund to provide vital support to neighborhood businesses that most need help.

"I am proud to support the Bring Back Brooklyn Fund. Brooklyn is all of us!"

- Eric Adams, Brooklyn Borough President

DONATE NOW - Your local small businesses are the heart of our great neighborhoods — help save them today. It's time for all of us to come together to keep our neighborhoods strong.

Make a Difference in Your Community

No-interest, community-driven loans to save local business.

We created the Bring Back Brooklyn Fund in response to COVID-19 when we saw how many of our local businesses were being shut out of government loans. Through our CDFI, Brooklyn Alliance Capital (BAC), we will provide no-interest, recovery loans of $500 - $10,000 to help local small businesses recover from COVID-19. 65% of the Bring Back Brooklyn loans will be made to minority and women-owned businesses.
