Hope for New York year end report
Each summer we take time to look back and celebrate all that has happened this past fiscal year (that is, July 1, 2018-June 30, 2019) — and we are so thankful for what God has done this past fiscal year!
We invested more than $2.32 million of funding into our non-profit affiliates. That’s our highest grant distribution yet and a 7% increase from last year! It includes $1,989,000 in direct grants, $100,000 in capacity building grants, $187,643 in volunteer impact grants, and $50,000 in seed funding for new initiatives!
On the volunteer side, 4,753 volunteers gave nearly 35,000 hours to serve our neighbors in need. We believe volunteers are invaluable resources to our affiliates, often playing the crucial role of filling in the gaps within non-profits, enabling these organizations to do work they might not have the capacity to do otherwise. We celebrate them!
We’re also celebrating our three newest church partners: Christ Church NYC, Emmanuel Anglican Church, and Wellspring Church NYC. Our hope is that our church partners would serve as amazing resources for our affiliates in the communities they serve. Ultimately, our hope is to see mutual transformation take place as people from our churches enter into relationships with people in their communities by serving at our affiliates.
In partnership with Redeemer, we launched the Neighborhood Advocate Cohort (NAC) as a learning community to equip lay people with a gospel-driven vision for the flourishing of communities and neighborhoods. Twenty-eight lay leaders from across the congregations met to worship, reflect, and learn about building mutual relationships, serving justly, and sharing the hope of Christ with their neighbors.
We are so grateful to our supporters, our volunteers, our partners, and our friends who made this possible. We’ll be sharing more stories in the coming months — and also more about the new affiliates we’re partnering with in the fall — but for now, thank you for celebrating with us!
Hope for New York’s mission is to mobilize volunteer and financial resources to organizations serving the poor and marginalized in New York City.
