BENEFITING: Catalog for Giving
EVENT DATE: Aug 07, 2011
I am participating in my first triathlon August 7 in New York City and am partnering with the Catalog for Giving to make it happen.
The Catalog for Giving is a non-profit dedicated to transforming the lives of New York City children adversely affected by poverty, drugs, crime and violence. The Catalog identifies, funds and supports innovative, community-based start up organizations, providing valuable skills to disadvantaged youth. I was particularly drawn to this organization because of the breadth of small non-profits they support and the emphasis on providing youth with concrete skills.
More information about the Catalog is here: http://www.cfgnyc.org/, I would really recommend taking some time to get to know the organization and get involved. Donors have the option to give money to all members of the Catalog or to one in particular. If you would like any donation you make to go to a particular member, please let me know and I would be happy to make that happen.
