We want to apologize to people who requested payment through checks . Due to a situation beyond our control, it will take us little longer to mail them out than our electronic methods of payment . We do guarantee that checks will begin to be sent out during the week of March 30th .   To donate to the Emergency GoFundMe: bit.ly/BKshowsLoveGOFUND

3/24 Important Update  1:40 pm :   Due to the overwhelming response  from over 500 people in 4 days we unfortunately have closed the emergency fund application process.   We are still providing community  kits of food and supplies  as well as resources to other funds , etc  It literally breaks our hearts to have to turn our peoples  away in these desperate  times. We apologize profusely to everyone . 


We truly want to make sure that we can help everyone that has applied .  We now urgently need  people to please GIVE  as much as you can .   We must now raise $70K to make sure that everyone who applied gets funded.  Please the word .
Thank you

 #BrooklynShowsLove  



Equality for Flatbush (E4F) is launching The #BrooklynShowsLove Emergency Fund for Flatbush, East Flatbush and Crown Heights residents  who are hourly wage workers, dollar van and cab drivers, domestic workers, street vendors, home health attendants, nail salon workers, hair braiders/dressers/barbers, sex workers, restaurant workers, artists, contract workers, construction workers, retail workers, daycare and child care providers, and others who lost their source of income during this crisis. We also want to support people living on fixed incomes, homeless individuals, and/or people who are food insecure who have relied on neighborhood food pantries that have shut down in this period.  

E4F wants to provide a one-time love offering of $150 to help people pay for groceries, keep up with their medications, take care of loved ones who are sick, etc to as many residents as possible. We will use Cash App, Venmo, PayPal, or paper checks.

Our goal is to fundraise for a cycle of applicants each week and distribute funds over the weekend. The 1st cycle to apply for will begin on Friday, March 20th and end on Friday, March 27th at 11:59pm. The funds will be distributed on March 28th and 29th. The 2nd cycle application would start on Saturday, March 28th and end on Friday, April 3rd at 11:59pm, with the funds being distributed during Saturday March 4th and Sunday, March 5th. Our goal is to continue to raise funds on a weekly basis as long as we can.

The criteria for funding is your name, address, neighborhood and method of payment. We have no desire to police who does and does not receive funds or not. No one will be turned away, as we all cope with this unprecedented global crisis.  All we ask is that people do an honest assessment of their access to other financial resources and think about the fact the average median income of many historically low-to-middle income African-American and migrant communities of color in Brooklyn is under $30K a year. 


We want to raise as much money as possible.

$30K will allow us to give funds to 200 of our neighbors

$50K will help us to support 333 community members

$70K will make sure that 466 residents get funds

$100K will ensure over 660 people receive a $150 love offering
