The Binghamton University Philanthropy Incubator has announced this year’s grant recipients.
This year, the Incubator has awarded more than $13,000 to the following local nonprofit agencies:
· Southern Tier Alternative Therapies, $1,500
· Family Enrichment Network, $3,000
· Broome County Urban League, $3,250
· Suicide Prevention and Crisis Service, Ithaca $1,500
· Children’s Home of Wyoming Conference, $2,250
· Mom’s House, $1,500
Agencies were selected for funding based upon student research and were expected to meet various qualifications for the grant. This semester, students worked diligently to focus on key initiatives centered on the Incubator’s mission, strategy, revenue generation and organizational structure.
The Philanthropy Incubator, which is funded by The Sunshine Lady Foundation, student fundraising and the Campus Compact/Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund, is a mechanism to teach students in the Binghamton University Scholars Program, Masters of Public Administration (MPA) and Social Work (MSW) programs about philanthropy and nonprofit management.
Under the direction of MPA faculty member David Campbell, students designed and implemented the grant-making process, as well as the fund-raising efforts to support the project.
