“We are excited to offer a new capacity-building resource to local nonprofit organizations in partnership with Resilia,” said Qiana Williams, program officer at CNYCF. “The ongoing support and tools offered through the program will help our community’s vital organizations develop their boards, raise funds and tell stories that will help them have a greater impact with the populations they serve.”
“Our newest partnership with the Central New York Community Foundation is an ideal alliance. The organizations in CNYCF’s cohort share Resilia’s commitment to equity and align deeply with our ongoing mission to support the changemakers in historically excluded communities. Our tools, resources, and features were created to advance this critical work,” says Resilia founder and CEO Sevetri Wilson.
Through the partnership, Central New York Community Foundation has also joined Resilia’s flagship ELEVATE initiative, a first-of-its-kind national funders collaborative comprised of 29 funders and aimed at elevating the capacity and voices of BIPOC-led and BIPOC-serving grassroots organizations throughout the country.
