Our Community Partners
As a 100% volunteer organization, our community partners are vital to the success of our organization. They donate funds, items and volunteers in support of our mission to enhance the quality of life in the underserved areas of Riverside and Black Rock.
Recently the KeyBank Foundation donated $40,000 in support of our "Pitch in Buffalo" project, which will bring a $300k multiple-purpose athletic field to the Black Rock neighborhood, along the Scajaquada Creek.
In 2022 we received a $5,000 grant from the Cullen Foundation, in partnership with the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), for their "Expanding Access to the Arts" initiative. This grant has funded the commissioning of (3) public art projects in the Riverside neighborhood to be completed in July 2023.
