The mission of Dwight Hall at Yale is “to foster civic-minded student leaders and to promote service and activism in New Haven and around the world.”
Dwight Hall features over 85 student-run member groups that engage 3,500 students, or 2/3 of Yale’s undergraduates, each year in service and social justice activities. A student Executive Committee is elected by leaders from the member groups and works with a professional staff to support student programs, allocate resources and advance initiatives between the Yale and New Haven communities. Dwight Hall is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of students, Yale faculty, alumni and community leaders.

Welcome to GNH Community where you can post activities and event, start a discussion or share pictures and video with you colleagues in other local nonprofits. It is possible to send event invitations to non-site members or to create a group and invite the members of the Chamber NPC to join that group. Each member can edit their settings to get email notice just about the things they want to hear about. I am open to making the chair of the council a co-administrator. This give you the ability to send messages to all members no matter what their settings and to ban folks if they are using the site inappropriately. Let me know if you have any questions.

In the era of Covid-19, connected ecosystems are paying off for small businesses struggling to keep their doors open. Which proves just how critical LISC’s ongoing work to build relationships that support economic development really is, in times of crisis and beyond.
LISC has been named one of the ImpactAssets 50, a who’s-who of fund managers dedicated to creating positive social and environmental impact. LISC is one of seven community development financial institutions (CDFIs) that were selected for this year’s IA 50, reflecting the critical role CDFIs have played during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Treasury Department’s CDFI Fund announced a new round of Capital Magnet Fund grants to spur an expected $5.3 billion in affordable housing and economic development. LISC will use its $7.5 million award to leverage $181 million in development activity in urban and rural communities.
