"I Love Greater New Haven Nonprofits" campaign @ Tent City

Event Details

 

WHAT

The International Festival will provide a tent on the New Haven Green that will contain 2' x 2' displays created by New Haven area nonprofits showcasing their work. This "Tent City" emulates the “I Love Greater New Haven Nonprofits” Holiday Storefront, which took place at the Grove during the 2010 Holidays. In the tent, visitors will learn about the great diversity of impact by nonprofits, share how nonprofits have impacted their lives, and also connect to giving and volunteering opportunities via a laptop connected to GNH Community website.

 

WHY

1. To increase public awareness of the many nonprofit organizations in Greater New Haven.
2. To increase awareness and appreciation of the many ways in which nonprofits contribute to the well-being of the community. Most people are aware that nonprofits provide a lot of intangibles: enhancing the quality of life for its citizens through arts, cultural and educational institutions. They are also aware that nonprofits care for those in need -- through hospitals and human services organizations. However, far fewer people consider the many ways in which nonprofits contribute to the economic vitality of the communities in which they have a presence: as employers, and purchasers of services, whose employees purchase homes, cars, food, clothing, etc.

3.  To provide an opportunity for community members to access the services provided by area nonprofit organizations, through area websites that access services, volunteer opportunities, employment and philanthropy.

Who Is Putting This Together?

The Tent is a collaboration between The I love Greater New Haven Nonprofits Campaign, Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce, and you.

If you would like to participate please take the following steps:

  1. Create a 2 foot by 2 foot display about your organization to be hung in the tent.  OR Use the sign created for you during the holiday store front.  Sign Up Form Link
  2. Volunteer for a shift at the tent – educating people about the impact of nonprofits to our community (talking points will be provided). Volunteer here: http://ilovegnhnp.i-volunteeronline.com/tentcity

 

 

NOTE:  Space for displays is limited, so preference will be given for organizations who also sign up to volunteer at the Tent.   Please forward this link to your staff/ volunteers / board members etc. to volunteer for a shift.  It is requested that if you are displaying a sign you provide at least one volunteer.

Working together to build a stronger community - now and forever

Neighborhoods: What is Working

The Church and Proximity

How St. Matthews Episcopal Church in Westerville, Ohio created a new narrative for itself and been radically shaped by the community in which it lives and serves.

Restorative Practices: A Toolbox for Turbulent Times

Transcription of John and Peter's May 8, 2018 conversation with Thom Allena about his work in getting justice out of courthouses and into neighborhoods. Thom is a community and organizational psychologist who for nearly thirty-five years has worked in the fields of community and restorative justice, applying creative approaches to respond to crime, violence and group conflict. In Thom’s community justice work, citizens are invited to play active rather than passive roles in determining the shape of justice and become more directly involved in redressing the quality of life issues that are breached by crime.

Associating Associations: The Power of Convening

While many institutions are interested in enabling neighborhoods, they tend to focus on interventions and see convening as a means to their ends. An even more productive function could be to act as a neutral convener.

UVA’s Fairchild Named to LISC Board

LISC has elected Dr. Gregory Fairchild, one of the country’s leading academics on economic development, to its board of directors. The University of Virginia business professor has, for decades, focused his research on the underpinnings of wealth-building in communities and the ways that social enterprises and entrepreneurship can drive economic opportunity.

The Time is Now, to Build an Inclusive Economy

Over the next ten years, LISC will direct 50 percent of our annual investments to fuel inclusive economic development in underinvested communities across America. That means preparing people to take on high quality, well-paying jobs. And it means ramping up our work to help small businesses succeed and transforming vibrant commercial and industrial districts. “We have no doubt that this kind of progress is good for residents, good for communities and good for the country,’ says Maurice A. Jones, LISC CEO.

All Economic Development, All the Time

Bill Taft, the longtime executive director of LISC Indianapolis, has been named senior vice president of economic development for LISC and will be spearheading our work to grow enterprises and create jobs in the places that need them. In the following Q&A, he talks strategy, practice and what it takes to build inclusive local economies in real life.
