Help increase CGR's impact on the community

In 2021, CGR made a significant contribution to Rochester’s future through our work with the Commission on Racial and Structural Equity (RASE) created by the Rochester Mayor and Monroe County Executive. CGR worked with the 21 members and 3 co-chairs to analyze policy, practice and data; listen to and learn from the community about their experiences with racism and inequity; identify gaps and structures underlying inequity; and develop nearly 40 specific recommendations.

The RASE report was honored by the Governmental Research Association and is driving forward efforts by the City of Rochester, Monroe County and community-based organizations to make our community a more equitable and just place for all residents.

CGR would not have been ready to take on this challenge without your support. We use your dollars to ensure our organization is strong, nimble and ever-growing in our capacity to serve this community, and make it better. We also completed a new strategic framework this year that centers our commitment to driving positive change in communities through the highest quality research, analysis, data insights and collaboration.

I am incredibly proud of what CGR helped accomplish in 2021, and equally grateful for the partnership of people like you, who understand the part we play in our community’s problem-solving infrastructure.
