"I Love Greater New Haven Non-Profits" campaign

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Your organization is invited to participate in the "I Love Greater New Haven Non-Profits" campaign.

Now in its second year, this initiative will be promoted during the International Festival of Arts & Ideas when representatives from New Haven's nonprofits will get the word out about the value of nonprofit to our community through distribution of "impact fact cards" and other fun activities. If you participated last year, your "impact fact card" will be used again.

To add your organization to the fact cards distributed at this year's Festival (only if you did NOT participate last year, because we are still using those cards) go to this link:

Visit 2009 GNHNP Impact Cards to see last year's impact cards here

You do not need to attend the Box City or concerts to participate, but we ask each organization provide at least two volunteers over the course of each weekend to help with the campaign. Deadline for submission of your organization's fact card is 5pm on Friday, May 21.

Here's How it Works:

Representatives from area nonprofits will dispense "I Love Greater New Haven Non-Profits" stickers as well as "Impact Fact Trading Cards" during two weekends of the Arts & Ideas Festival.

Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13 from 12:00 - 5:00pm: "Box City," 900 Chapel Street, New Haven.

Saturday, June 19 and Sunday, June 20 from 5:00 - 7:00pm: during concerts on the Green.

Volunteers will encourage people to trade cards and complete a crossword puzzle educating them about the great diversity of work and impact of Greater New Haven nonprofits. There will be prizes to encourage people to complete the crossword puzzle.

Our hope is that the stickers, cards, and crossword puzzle will inspire people to talk about the incredible value and importance of nonprofit organizations to the New Haven community, creating a collective "buzz" that will build support for all of our work.

Making Recovery Equitable

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones joined a panel of researchers and other experts brought together by the Philadelphia Fed to discuss how government at all levels can help small businesses recover from the pandemic, and how these programs must evolve to ensure equitable recovery. The webinar is part of an ongoing series examining best practices for bringing about equity as we emerge from the crisis.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
