|Harlem RBI awarded $200,000|
Harlem RBI was recently awarded with a PropelNext grant from the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation of $200,000 over 18 months as well as expert strategic consulting assistance to help strengthen the organization’s program design and build a performance management system. PropelNext is a new venture of the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation that seeks to advance the programmatic impact of promising, primarily local youth-serving organizations across the country. Harlem RBI is one of 15 organizations in ten states that were selected, out of 102 nonprofits invited to apply, to participate in PropelNext’s first cohort.
“Harlem RBI is thrilled by the opportunity to join the first cohort of the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation's PropelNext venture. We are thankful for the Foundation's generous gift and know their grant will enable us to strengthen our performance measurement systems and processes, creating greater program accountability and while preparing Harlem RBI for bigger and better opportunities as we expand and replicate our services,” said Richard Berlin, Executive Director of Harlem RBI.
“Harlem RBI is doing innovative and inspiring work with kids who desperately need help,” said Lissette Rodríguez, EMCF’s Director of Capacity Building, who developed and oversees PropelNext. “We are pleased to help this organization ensure, increase and broaden the impact of its work in East Harlem and beyond.”
