Tonight’s Digital DUMBO get together at the DUMBO Loft (155 Water Street) takes on new meaning as the group, along with our pals at DumboNYC, will make its first philanthropic contribution. The recipient – the Brooklyn Community Foundation which provides funding to various area organizations. Marketing agency The JAR Group and DumboNYC will match “TIP JAR” donations made at the meetup tonight.
DumboNYC’s Hide tells BHB, “Digital DUMBO approached us for ideas on how to get involved in supporting the community. DumboNYC.com is already donating proceeds from our community website to area non-profits, but this is one more example of how our area is working to build a neighborhood that sustains culture, innovation and new opportunity for growth”
