The Yale Alumni Association of New York (YAANY) is proud to announce a new initiative: the YAANY Benefit Partners program.
We are committed to assisting charitable organizations and will extend our community outreach by supplementing our public service and social justice programs to help raise awareness and funds for partner organizations and their causes. YAANY will publicize a benefit event or dinner hosted by select partner organizations to affirm our support for their contribution to the city and greater New York area and to bring together Yalies who share an interest in those causes. Join Yalies, meet new friends, and raise funds at the same YAANY table as you celebrate that organization’s great work and future promise.
Our launch of the program features two stellar organizations and events. The first is the Passport to Possibilities GALA for Upwardly Global on June 3rd. Upwardly Global offers many programs for educated and skilled immigrants, refugees, and asylees to help them overcome the numerous barriers to professional employment in the United States. Our second is the Kingsbridge Heights Community Center (KHCC) Summer Soiree at the New York Botanical Garden. KHCC is a settlement house that serves the northwest Bronx with programs that range from early childhood to adult and senior services. Its mission is to build on the strengths of residents in its diverse community. Both these events are in early June. Be sure to visit their event pages for more information, including information on how to reserve your ticket(s) for these special events!
