CPC RECEIVES GRANT FROM MACKENZIE SCOTT

The grant will support our commitment to invest in our staff, community, and organization.

 

New York, NY The Chinese-American Planning Council (CPC) is excited to announce that it has received a grant from MacKenzie Scott. This one-time grant will be used to support the organization’s ongoing efforts to promote staff development, expand essential programming, and strengthen organizational infrastructure.

“We are grateful to Ms. Scott for her generous donation and her recognition of our commitment to providing high-quality services to community members of all ages and backgrounds. This grant will be instrumental in achieving our mission by helping us to reach more New Yorkers through expanded programs and motivating them to become agents of change in their lives and communities. It will also provide us with the opportunity to invest more resources to enhance staff benefits and organizational infrastructure,” said Flora Si, Board Chair of CPC.

“During the pandemic, we provided over $4 million in bonuses to our human services, direct care, and home care workers. This grant will allow us to build upon our commitment to our staff in a sustainable way,” said Wayne Ho, President and CEO of CPC. “Because government contracts limit staff compensation and do not cover the full cost of providing services, this grant will also supplement our advocacy efforts to ensure living wages for nonprofit workers. For years, we have been partnering with advocates, providers, and community members to fight for Just Pay for human services workers, Fair Pay for Home Care workers, and salary parity for early childhood staff.”

CPC is one of 343 organizations that has received funding from MacKenzie Scott this year. She funded community-based organizations that promote social justice, have strong leadership, make positive impacts in the community, and expanded services during the pandemic. Mackenzie Scott announced her latest round of grants here.

As the nation's largest Asian American social services organization, CPC offers more than 50 programs in 35 sites across New York City to over 200,000 individuals and families from all 56 community districts. CPC has significantly expanded services during the pandemic and addressed new challenges experienced by community members. Throughout the pandemic, CPC distributed nearly $7.5 million in cash assistance and child care scholarships to families as well as nearly 400,000 lbs. of food to community members. CPC also participated in over 300 legislative meetings, speaking engagements, and rallies to advocate for an equitable recovery and community safety for Asian American New Yorkers.
