Even in a year when coffees became calls and meetings moved to Zoom, the response was amazing! On March 4th, we closed our Inaugural Year 147 women strong. What we thought would be an impediment, the pandemic’s ravaging of our city, became our clarion call for the needs and the work we could do to meet them. Nonprofits reached out in staggering numbers for a nascent organization.
Four grant review committees vetted two rounds of deserving nonprofits, selecting four finalists. And, with our grants, will continue to help New York City and New Yorkers overcome adversity and thrive. And, we have already expanded our outreach and impact with the launch of nextgen, a high school program to cultivate a new cohort of philanthropists.
Excitedly, we started to meet again in person – and can’t wait to meet ALL of you!
Now, we are setting our sights on making (at least!) two $100,000 transformational grants to NYC nonprofits. It’s time for you to reach out to your families, friends and colleagues to join us in making the biggest difference we can in the greatest city in the world.
