Fundraising is absolutely critical for the survival of nonprofits like Children’s Aid. Every dollar counts. But some donations come with an outsized impact.
The Fresh Air Fund's Young Women's Giving Circle is a youth-led organization made up of teenage girls from the ages of 14-21 from across New York City. Each year the teens research different topics that affect teenagers in the community and then choose one for advocacy and fundraising. For the past year, about 20 young women convened every Tuesday for this purpose and ultimately decided on Teen Health Awareness and how to manage physical, mental, and self-care well-being. After a series of workshops and volunteer opportunities, the group identified our Bronx Health Clinic because of our provision of health information and services to teens—and the impact that work has—and chose Children’s Aid as the recipient of their fundraising dollars. The total of $3,000 included a generous match from the Fresh Air Fund.
Thank you for the financial support as well as your dedication to important health issues.
