• Weeksville Heritage Center
• Brooklyn Defenders
• Children of Promise
• Brooklyn United Music and Arts Program
• Bard Prison Initiative / Bard Micro college at Brooklyn Public Library

In 2018, the New York City mayor officially designated August 28th as Angela Yee Day, a platform that celebrates Yee’s Caribbean and Brooklyn roots while supporting local businesses. Her dedication to providing the community with information and access to culture, nutrition, financial literacy, and education remains the core of her philanthropy.
