BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF THE CHILDREN NEW YORK
EVENT DATE: Dec 31, 2013
Dear friends and colleagues,
I saw some remarkable success stories with a group of Achievers at Friends of the Children NY’s most recent fundraising event. These children were identified at the kindergarten level by FOTCNY to be of the highest risk for juvenile delinquency, teen parenthood and dropping out of school – when I met them these same people spoke about the university they were attending and careers they were exploring! The results are seen in the amazing statistics the organization has achieved: e.g. 83% high school graduation rate, 80% improvement in juvenile delinquency and an 85% reduction in teen pregnancy. I joined their Board of Directors this year to do what I could to help grow the organization such that even more children in New York could be accommodated into what is truly a unique program.
Please support Friends of the Children NY along with me and consider making a tax-deductible donation to continue including even more at-risk children and break the cycle of generational poverty. This organization was named as one of America’s Top 100 performing charities in Social Impact Exchange’s S&I 100 index of U.S. nonprofits last year.
