Care 2 Communities’ Founder and President, Elizabeth Sheehan, and Board Member, Peter Urbanczyk, recently participated in The Funding Network (TFN) USA/NY’s spring event. C2C was delighted to receive an invitation!
Held in the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space in New York City, TFN’s Spring Event brought together a number of donors and three non-profit organizations for a night of live crowdfunding. Donors listened as each organization – including C2C, The New Black, and the Reciprocity Foundation – presented their work. Elizabeth and Peter presented on behalf of C2C, explaining our work and goals for the future.
Following the presentations, donors participated in “auction-style” fundraising sessions, where anyone could raise his/her hand and give a minimum of $100 to the organization being “auctioned.”
The evening was a complete success, with more than $36,000 raised in total, $12,300 of which was awarded to C2C. Funding will be directed toward the new electronic medical record and data capture solution at our newest clinic in Camp Coq. Thank you to TFN and thank you to the donors who chose to support C2C!
