The Alexander Fishman Childhood Joy Fund

We seek to provide financial assistance and support so that a more diverse and inclusive group of children can experience the joys and benefits of summer day camps and other enriching activities in the North Brooklyn community.

About


We formed The Alexander Fishman Childhood Joy Fund to make more childhood joy possible, despite circumstances that threaten its existence like poverty, oppression, job loss, abuse, illness, or loss of a loved one, among others.

Our mission is to provide MORE JOY FOR MORE CHILDREN in North Brooklyn by providing financial support so that a more diverse and inclusive group of children can experience the joys and benefits of summer day camps and activities in the North Brooklyn Community.
