What did North Star Fund need?

Hema helped North Star Fund improve their ability to predict the financial impact of changes in their funding and expenses, so that they can effectively plan for the future and avoid surprises.

Why is this project important?

The success of our organization depends on securing long-term support from individual donors. Without your help, we cannot project the viability of our support base over time. Your skills will empower us to streamline our efforts and maximize program dollars.

This project will save us $14,474, allowing us to renew funding for 3 new women-led worker protection campaigns in laundromats in the Bronx and Brooklyn.
