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.

Letter from our new President & CEO, Meg Barnette

New York’s nonprofits have been nothing short of extraordinary during the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonprofit New York sees you and applauds the ways you have innovated, adapted, and stepped up in the face of this devastating crisis. 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.
