SPONSOR THE NEW YORK CHAPTER
Project by Project’s success is due in large part to the generous support of our corporate sponsors. If your company would like to work with PbP in either a corporate giving or marketing capacity, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. PROJECT BY PROJECT: DEVELOPING LEADERS THROUGH INNOVATIVE PHILANTHROPY
As part of the Project by Project experience, our members undergo a Leadership Development Curriculum that crowdsources the best practices and insights from industry experts on how to effect change in the community. In addition to volunteering with our nonprofit partners, members hone in on their skillsets through a Leadership Development Platform, working collaboratively to increase PbP’s own organizational capacity, which includes: improving existing programs and processes; establishing training programs for new managers; and developing sound operating systems in the areas of marketing, finance, operations, and human resource development.
By providing an intentional learning environment for volunteers to practice leadership skills through sustained group interaction, PbP is able to develop a pipeline for young leaders to serve on boards and take greater leadership responsibility in all aspects of community and society.
2. PUBLIC AWARENESS AND FUNDRAISING
Every year, each PbP chapter in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco champions a community nonprofit as its beneficiary partner, driving a tailored year-long campaign building capacity around the nonprofit’s fundraising, community outreach, and public awareness efforts. Since 1998, PbP-NY has supported 21 non-profit organizations focusing on 17 themes in the API community with over $250,000 in unrestricted funding, addressing issues spanning civil rights, social action, advocacy, crisis intervention, and victim services.
See some of our beneficiary partner testimonials below:
“CACF is deeply grateful for the support and leadership from Project by Project. PbP’s focus on supporting the Asian Pacific American community here in NYC is so important. Through PbP’s help, we were able to continue to develop a model initiative to address the mental health needs of Asian Pacific American children and families after the tragedies of 9/11. With PbP, we were able to raise public awareness of the impact of 9/11 on Asian Pacific American families, work on developing a sense of community for these families, and ensure mental health professionals and other service providers were culturally responsive to these families.”
- Kim To, Development Director, Coalition for Asian American Children and Families (CACF)
“Project by Project came to ECPAT-USA and gave us a much-needed boost at a crucial time in our history. We work on issues of child sex trafficking, raising awareness and changing policies to protect children. It is sometimes very challenging to talk about this issue. But Project by Project volunteers came in the door filled with energy, creativity and enthusiasm right from the start, helping us to fulfill of our mission of protecting every child’s right to grow up free from commercial sexual exploitation. I will always be grateful for the work of every one of the volunteers who helped us.”
- Carol Smolenski, Executive Director, ECPAT-USA

3. COMMUNITY OUTREACH AND VOLUNTEERISM
In 2017, during PbP’s 20th anniversary, the NY chapter piloted Project LEAD (Leaders Empowering Action Day), a one-day hackathon-styled event. Project LEAD aims to bring together multidisciplinary professionals, creatives and problem solvers for a day to work on issues facing the most vulnerable members of the local Asian American community.
On a national level, PbP officially launched a new program called CASES (Collaborations Accelerating Sustainable Engagement and Solutions) in 2018. This is an initiative where our steering committee members and supporters provide pro-bono consulting services to our beneficiary partners and community nonprofits. Through project engagements, PbP supports its nonprofit partner with deliverables that range from strategic plans and implementation timelines surrounding recruitment and marketing strategies, ROI evaluation, financial planning, and data analysis – that would allow its community partner to increase effectiveness, broaden reach, boost revenues and reduce costs.
