-- The Institute for Regional Conservation (IRC) announced that they received a $10,000 Community Impact Grant from New York Life in support of their Restoring the Gold Coast program, which mobilizes partnerships within the community to teach children and adults about environmental advocacy as they also learn about the importance of protecting our coastal dunes and work toward restoring damage done. Participants will be provided with rich opportunities to learn how biodiversity keeps our Earth healthy and ultimately keeps us healthy too.
The Community Impact Grant program awards grants of up to $25,000 to local nonprofit organizations, which are championed by New York Life agents and employees. Since the program's inception in 2008, nearly 600 grants totaling more than $7 million have been awarded to nonprofits across the country.
According to John Campanola, Agent with New York Life's South Florida General Office in Sunrise, "The Community Impact Grants program is very competitive, with a comprehensive evaluation process. This application rose to the top because it showed how New York Life's funding will address a compelling need in our local community, a key component of a winning application."
Mr. Campanola, has been a volunteer with the IRC for over five years and is serving on their Board of Directors. For more information visit http://www.regionalconservation.org
