For those in the nonprofit or social impact space, here’s something. The Crown Heights-based Brooklyn Community Foundation is looking for up to three small startups or organizations for an 18-month incubator program, which offers free office space and $5,000 stipend, with no ask for equity.

“In alignment with the Foundation’s Racial Justice Lens, the Incubator Project will support nonprofits, community groups, and community leaders working in one or more of the following areas of focus: Housing Rights, Immigrant Rights, Gender Equity, Environmental Justice, Criminal Justice, and Arts and Culture,” according to the organization.

Prospective orgs must have a commitment to racial justice and a community-driven approach, have revenue of less than $250,000 and not have been in business for more than a year. If that’s you, check it out:
