CRE Rising Fund

The CRE Rising Fund was developed out of CRE’s mission to serve nonprofit organizations that have deep roots in their communities and are working to fight poverty and advance opportunity.

Through the CRE Rising Fund, expert CRE consultants partner with small nonprofits to complete no-cost consulting engagements.  These projects help the selected nonprofits further meet the needs of their target populations. Awardees are selected through a short application process. To apply, organizations are asked to define a specific project that they would like CRE’s assistance with. 

In 2016, the CRE Rising Fund supported engagements with five grantees in the Bronx and Queens – Bronx Cooperative Development Initiative, Destination Tomorrow, Grace Outreach, The Knowledge House, and Turning Point for Women and Families.

The CRE Rising Fund is made possible by the generosity of individual and foundation donors. If you would like to be involved in sponsoring CRE’s efforts to provide pro bono consulting services to nonprofits in NYC, please reach out to Kate Eberle at
