New York, January 21, 2020 - The Chinese-American Planning Council (CPC) is proud to announce receiving a $5,000 grant from the Investors Foundation at New York City. The grant will help further CPC’s mission of promoting social and economic empowerment of Chinese American, immigrant, and low-income communities.
These funds will support CPC Project Gateway, a college counseling and resource center, to provide one-on-one counseling, workshops, college trips, financial literacy education, networking events, and other supports for both youth and their families. CPC Project Gateway’s mission is to empower immigrant youth and first-in-family college students to fulfill their potential through post-secondary success.
“We would like to thank Investors Foundation for its generous grant, which will help CPC to continue empowering community members to reach their fullest potential and become successful in college and beyond,” said Wayne Ho, President and CEO of the Chinese-American Planning Council.
“We are honored to support the Chinese-American Planning Council’s Project Gateway, which helps guide, prepare and mentor high school students who are striving to attend college,” said Ana Oliveira, SVP and Retail Market Executive of Investors Bank. “Our Bank shares CPC’s belief that education and life-learning helps encourage individuals realize their potential in the workplace and in their lives. Also, our Bank and the Investors Foundation commend CPC for including financial literacy education as part of the Project Gateway program. It is an important initiative because young people who develop positive money-management skills are more likely to achieve the worthy goal of financial independence.”
