Giving Tuesday: it might just be our favorite holiday. It’s not that any of us need a reason to give, but there’s something very special about participating in a unified day of generosity in our nation. Over the last decade, we’ve been privileged to partner with and support dozens of amazing nonprofits who are making a significant impact in the Bronx. And this Giving Tuesday, we want to focus our attention toward our four, Community Chest Partners.

These are New York City change-makers you want to know; the ones you want to support. It’s been our joy to get to know them and experience their impact firsthand. We are so lucky to partner with them as part of our Community Chest Savings Program.

Rocking the Boat: Empowers youth through boat building and sailing

North Manhattan Coalition for Immigrant Rights (NMCIR): Educates, defends and protects the rights of immigrants in every borough.

Street Squash: Builds the confidence of youth through playing squash and educational support.

The Bronx YMCA: Supports families in the Bronx in their health and fitness.

Our Community Chest Partners are locally-based nonprofits and although they serve different demographics, each of them are committed to the same mission: equal opportunities for every resident in this city. Over the next several months, we will be showcasing their impact stories and offering you ways in which you can support them—including opening a Community Chest Savings Account.</p<

What a better way than Giving Tuesday to kick-start our collective support! We invite you to put your values into action and support their work of youth empowerment, justice, health and education in our city.
