The York Street Project

 

Established in 1989, the York Street Project provides housing, education, childhood development, counseling and life-skills training to more than 300 economically-disadvantaged women and children each year. The mission of the York Street Project is to break the cycle of poverty by weaving innovative programs that shelter, feed, educate and promote healing and independence for women and children in need. Funding Corporation employees support the York Street Project through volunteerism, food drives, corporate sponsorship and special events.

 
Cornell Program

 

The Funding Corporation is proud to support local high school students in the New York City area by providing funding that offers aid to students participating in pre-college programs during the summer. The Cornell Program enables exceptional high school students the opportunity to experience college life and take courses with some of Cornell University’s most outstanding professors. These high school students live in residence halls with summer college students on campus and receive support from Cornell staff who are there to support them as they begin to navigate college life.

 
Harlem Children’s Zone

 

As a mission-driven organization the Funding Corporation is proud to partner with Harlem Children’s Zone by contributing to their program initiative “Healthy Harlem”. This program facilitates healthy living in order to combat obesity in children. Through nutritional education, fitness activities and parent engagement, “Healthy Harlem” is encouraging thousands of children and families to acquire life-long healthy habits.  The program promotes widespread wellness through local community cooking classes, a farmers market with free fruits and vegetables, and exercise programs.

 
Volunteer Recognition

 

The Funding Corporation encourages employees to volunteer their time and share their talents to help those less fortunate and to enhance the quality of life in their local communities. We are proud to support employees of the Funding Corporation in their initiatives to volunteer and give back. In recognition of these efforts, the Funding Corporation has created an Annual Volunteer Service Award, which acknowledges employees who go above and beyond to enhance the quality of life for others. The Funding Corporation makes a $500.00 donation to the 501(c)(3) organization selected by the recipient of the Award.
