Eyes on the Future

Dear Nonprofit New York members, partners, and friends,

We wish we had words that could provide meaningful respite from the mix of outrage, despair, exhaustion, fear, or weariness you and your teams are feeling today.

We are not sure such words exist, but this we know for sure: We denounce the violence against Black communities across our country and in our own city and state.

With no map for navigating these uncharted and uncertain times, you have put your mission and communities first, managed immense change with no lead time, and found ways to respond to increased needs with diminished resources.
