Delray-based Institute for Regional Conservation (IRC) 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.
“The Community Impact Grants program is very competitive, with a comprehensive evaluation process,” said New York Life agent John Campanola. “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.”
