Scam Alert: Fraudulent Donation Refund Requests

Several nonprofits are reporting receiving a large, unexpected donation, supposedly made in memory of a loved one. The donation comes looking like a legitimate cashier’s check. Soon after, they are contacted by someone saying the donation wasn’t meant to be that large, and they are asked to refund a portion of it. But then the fraudulent cashier’s check bounces, leaving the nonprofit with no way to recover the amount they “refunded” to the donor.

On the evening of Thursday, Feb. 22nd, members of the Emerging Leaders Program Class of 2024 had a great time at a festive ELP meet-up. With the largest class in ELP history, we aimed to provide ELPers an extra chance to connect and strengthen their relationships. Thank you to the Westchester Library System for generously hosting and allowing us to change your conference room into a social hall!

The ELP advisory board, comprised of ELP alums Danté R.H. Reda, Dana Hysell, Krishna Brodigan, and Juanita Pope took charge of the meet-up, facilitating engaging icebreakers and sharing personal testimonials of their enriching ELP journeys. 

They reminisced about the enduring friendships forged, the cross-organizational connections established, and the opportunities to collaborate and partner within the sector. Additionally, they celebrated achievements such as awards and promotions attained since their participation in the program.

By the end, no one wanted to leave! Huge thanks to the ELP Advisory Board for putting this meet-up together and to our ELP program sponsor M&T Bank

NEW: Funding for Mental Health Initiatives through Brown & Brown Insurance: Shifting Gears on Brain Health Funding Opportunity

Funding for Mental Health Initiatives through Brown & Brown Insurance: Shifting Gears on Brain Health Funding Opportunity

One of Brown & Brown’s key focuses is Brain Health. Their CEO Powell Brown and his brother Kelim and Barrett are avid cyclists. From August 20 - 26, 2023, they cycled the French Alps to raise awareness and funds to support brain health - their term for mental health.

Powell, Kellim and Barrett have successfully (and safely) completed the ride and raised several million dollars that will be donated to nonprofit organizations working in the areas of brain/mental health research, education, prevention, and treatment. The Shifting Gears on Brain Health Donor Advisory Committee is excited to announce that the application period for grant submissions has begun. The application deadline is March 31, 2024, with decisions to follow in August 2024. Grant recipients will be notified by September 1, 2024.

Please direct all questions to
