2017 New Futures, Bright Futures Benefit



We are thrilled to share that with your help, we raised more than $300,000 to empower our Scholars and propel our mission forward.

We were humbled to host Chef José Andrés, who shared stories about his life-changing work in Puerto Rico and reminded us of the limitless potential of the human spirit when we work together.

You helped us to honor New Futures founder Mike Gould and establish an award in recognition of his legacy.  And you were with us when we presented the inaugural Mike Gould Award to our invaluable champion Emily van Agtmael.

You celebrated the strength and spirit of New Futures Scholars, particularly of Dajanee and Manuel, who were profiled in our video. They shared first-hand the impact that New Futures makes on education, career, and family.

Finally, you helped us to raise more than $300,000.

We are so grateful.

These funds will directly empower New Futures Scholars and Alumni through post-secondary scholarships, skill-building workshops, personalized academic and career counseling, and countless other supports that connect our young people to educational opportunities and rewarding careers.

Together, we launch new futures.
