Last week, City & State New York held a special event to acknowledge the “Power 50” in the nonprofit sector—the 50 most influential people who are leading the way to a brighter future through their philanthropic work.
Among those 50 key players were The Doe Fund’s founders, George T. McDonald and Harriet Karr-McDonald. They were highlighted for the immeasurable impact they’ve made on the homeless and formerly incarcerated populations in New York City, and for their commitment to bringing about change through supportive housing, occupational training, and holistic services.
We are so proud to see our founders standing among the most inspirational organization leaders in New York, including:
- Wes Moore, CEO of Robin Hood, one of the largest anti-poverty forces in the nation
- Lorie Slutsky, President of New York Community Trust, which connects generous New Yorkers with vital nonprofits working to make a healthy, equitable, and thriving community for all
- Donna Lieberman, Executive Director of the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU), one of the nation’s foremost defenders of civil liberties and civil rights
We’re grateful to City & State for recognizing all of these people who are determinedly working to create a better New York, and a better world. Congrats to every member of this year’s Power 50!
