On June 23, after 4 months of hard work, our spring 16 cohort of causes safely made it through our second Nonprofit Accelerator. Congrats to our nonprofit teams who have successfully completed our Spring 16' Nonprofit Accelerator and will be pitching their cause at our upcoming nonprofit pitch night.


Participating teams included 4 nonprofits:

3 faith-based initiatives:

  • Renewal Prayer Network, 
  • Community Mentors &
  • Revive NY

As well as 2 local social entrepreneurs:

  • Chris Parsons &
  • Tiffany Dawn.

To celebrate the organizations who have completed the Light the City (LTC) Nonprofit Accelerator, a 4 month program designed to boost the impact and visibility of mission driven organizations, participants receive the opportunity to share their stories, causes and outcomes with an audience of prospective friends and funders at a pitch night that is open to the public.

This is one of a kind event where we get to hear from those people who are not only working in their organizations for social change but working on them. 

Join us as we celebrate & connect with those people who are loving our city into greatness.
