MCC Member NYU Awards More than $160K in Grant Monies to Lower Manhattan Non-Profit Organizations

At an award ceremony early this summer, New York University’s Office of Civic Engagement awarded more than $160,000 in grants to 83 community-based non-profit organizations, with money raised through the NYU Combined Campaign, the T.G. White Fund, and Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.

“The grant funding comes not from the University itself, but from hundreds of NYU employees, each of whom believes in the important work being done by these organizations every day,” said Bill Pfeiffer, director of the Office of Civic Engagement. “As of this year, the NYU Community Fund celebrates its 30th year of operation, proud to have awarded more than 1,600 grants totaling more than $2.5M to community groups since the program’s inception.”
