Who We Are
The Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York Junior Board introduces young professionals to the varied programs and works of Catholic Charities through volunteer opportunities, social gatherings, faith-based events and philanthropic support. The Junior Board helps cultivate the next generation of leaders committed to Catholic Charities and serving those in need in our community.
Our Year-Round Initiatives
Junior Board Gala
This signature event benefits Catholic Charities St. Nicholas Project, a year-round initiative that provides help at Christmas and creates hope year-round for thousands of New Yorkers in need.
Your support is greatly needed and will assist Catholic Charities in meeting our increased demands for help, because need has no season.
This year’s gala raised close to $48,000 to support the St. Nicholas project… by far the best it has done since inception!
Support the St. Nicholas Project
The Junior Board participates in activities throughout the year to support the St. Nicholas Project, a year-round initiative that provides more than 4,000 individuals with warm clothing and household necessities annually during the Christmas season. This year, we hope to raise more than $300,000 for the St. Nicholas Project through our annual Junior Board Gala, membership campaign, and other fundraising efforts.
Through your membership and volunteer work, you make it possible for the St. Nicholas Project to thrive. As a thank you for your membership and dedication to Catholic Charities, we offer perks for each membership level.
Junior Board members are expected to:
- Make a financial membership pledge (all pledges support the St. Nicholas Project)
- Participate in volunteer opportunities worth 15+ hours
- Attend the annual Junior Board Gala
- Attend both bi-annual general meetings – one in the Fall and one in the Spring of each year
