May 5, 2008
Get Ready for a Celebration of Nonprofits and Neighborhoods
On Tuesday evening, July 1st at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, there will be fireworks. There will also be several hundreds of nonprofit and neighborhood leaders gathered to ensure that the grassroots organizations that shore up our communities, from the bottom up, get the training and assistance they need to attract the funding their missions deserve.
The Neighborhood Technical Assistance Clinic has assembled the Mayor’s Office, all five Borough Presidents, City Council members, Federal and State elected officials and an impressive list of New York City’s major grassroots-supporting nonprofits and foundations to make the point that “neighborhood rule” has never been stronger or more important, in a night of celebration and commitment.
Cesar Claro, President of the Richmond County Savings Foundation will be one of the honorees, along with New York State Senator Velmanette Montgomery; Seth Edwards, VP of Community Relations for JP Morgan Chase; Brenda Scott, Director of Community Affairs- Macy’s East; and Elwanda Young, Chief Operating Officer of The United Way of New York City.
Sundog Theatre, a performing arts organization in Staten Island, has been chosen to be one of the recipients of a Technical Assistance grant which will be given to 4 other nonprofits, as a result of funds raised that evening. The other organizations are Harlem Dowling Parents’ Council, Sesame Flyers International, LifeCampInc., and the Bronx Chapters of NAACP.
