Holiday Donation Page

Dear Friend,

Each year as the holiday season approaches, we look back to the wisdom of our founder, Mary Kingsbury Simkhovitch for inspiration. In her 1938 writings from Greenwich House Opens its Doors, Mrs. Simkhovitch explains that “the settlement is always primarily a group of people endeavoring to understand all the elements in the life of the neighborhood ... [so they can] get the slant of the neighbors from which the opportunity for change comes.” 

These words inspire us to respond to the needs of the entire community, and we rely on those who can, to support those in need. 

From our first financial supporter, Mrs. J. Pierpont Morgan, to our many donors today, all who support Greenwich House recognize that our primary concern for social progress manifests through the delivery of our social services and cultural and educational programs. 

Please join me by giving today to our holiday appeal and be among that group of people who make our community stronger. 

Sincerely,

Roy Leavitt
Executive Director and CEO
