Donor Support of CGR is Critical
CGR’s contract work only covers 85% of what we do. We need philanthropic support to conduct research in the public interest that is not funded by our clients. Every year we undertake special initiatives that grow out of the work we do, involve issues or concerns we do not see others addressing, or are of pressing community concern.
Our 2012 Initiatives:
- Supporting a Community Foundation initiative to identify and meet summer food needs of Rochester youth receiving free/reduced meals during the school year.
- Assisting ROC the Future, a community coalition (e.g., local colleges, businesses, civic organizations, and the Rochester School District) that is focused on improving “cradle-to-career” outcomes for youth.
- Designing, for community educational purposes, a nonpartisan redistricting plan for Monroe County NY, based not on serving political interests but instead on keeping communities with related needs/interests together.
- Assisting the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council in its drive to secure competitive funding for economic development projects, as a statewide initiative led by Governor Cuomo entered Year 2.
Previous initiatives focused attention on education reform, the importance of measuring the effectiveness of human service delivery, community health planning, voter concerns and property tax reform.
With your help, we can inform and empower leaders – and shape a stronger, brighter future for our community.
