A look back at what has been accomplished over the past 18 months since staff was brought on to be shared in a newsletter with regional funders and nonprofits.
We aim to be transparent in all we do and want to share with nonprofits, especially those who have taken their time to provide feedback and ideas, what we have done and where we are going. This will also provide an opportunity for feedback and co-creation. Additionally, we aim to be ambassadors of capacity building to funders across the region and this information will help tell the story of impact.
NY Funders Alliance was formed in 2015 for the purpose of supporting and promoting effective philanthropy throughout our region in New York State.
NY Funders Alliance is an association of grantmakers and philanthropic advisors throughout New York State. We provide and develop opportunities for funders to convene and connect, deliver tools and resources, and engage our members in programming that highlights national, state, and regional thought leaders that focus on issues members care about.
2 projects of the NY Funders Alliance includes the WNY Nonprofit Support Group (WNYNSG) and LiftOff. The WNYNSG is dedicated to strengthening communities by strengthening nonprofit capacity. Liftoff works with existing community organizations and networks to ensure that, by the time children reach kindergarten, they are prepared physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively to reach their fullest potential.
