  • Bank of America

    Bank of America has committed more than $1 million which includes partnering with mobilized nonprofits that can provide food and meal access and other basic needs to the most vulnerable populations.  In addition, the employee matching gift minimum has been lowered to $1 for employees interested in providing support so for every dollar an employee gives to an eligible nonprofit, Bank of America will match those funds up to $5,000 per employee. Additionally, to help students continue to learn at home during school closures, they partnered with Khan Academy to help them scale programs and initiatives to meet this need.

    • On March 16, 2020, we started an online chat forum that all 500+ of our Partners were invited to join.  The purpose of the forum, which is in line with the mission of Energeia, is to identify and address the serious, complex and multi-dimensional issues affecting the Long Island region due to the coronavirus.  It is also a place for Energeia Partners to share important information and resources with each other.  Since a lot of our Energeia Partners are on the front lines right now, we felt their first-hand contributions to the forum would be valuable. In just a month, we have over 215 Partners registered for the forum, 65 active threads and over 125 posts. 
    • On April 21, 2020 we put out a call to action for our Partners to help support our local not-for-profit organizations.  Here is the email we sent out:
      • In light of the exceptional circumstances of the coronavirus pandemic and its devastating impact on Long Island’s economy, public health and the financial well-being of many families, we are compiling a list of Long Island-based not-for-profit COVID-19 relief funds created by charities and service organizations to deal with the local impact of the coronavirus. If you work for or are associated with an organization that has a specific COVID-19 relief fund, please let us know the details. Here is what we need from you:

    1) Brief paragraph describing the organization;

    2) Brief paragraph that describes the specific purposes of the fund;

    3) Link or other information on how to contribute

    • Our next initiative is to work with our curriculum committees to create live webinars that will be available to all Energeia Partners.  We are reaching out to the following curriculum committees: Healthcare, Transportation, Poverty, Education, Criminal Justice and Resiliency and asking them to put together important/relevant information to share with our Partners.  Each webinar will include time to answer questions.

    Also, they are housing travelling healthcare workers in one of our residence halls:
