Cre

40 years of powering social change:

Why now?

The power of the social sector is its ability to make change in communities, both locally and across the country. Right now, with resources stretched thin and a constant level of uncertainty for many groups, nonprofit leaders recognize the need to strengthen their teams, their programs, and their organizations—to ensure sustainable results into the future.

Why CRE?

CRE is the partner that many organizations turn to when they need support. We have been honored to work with tens of thousands of organizations for 40 years. We have helped shape and grow the social sector in New York and beyond.

What’s next?

New York is a hub for social change, part of a movement growing across all states. CRE has been privileged to support this work and will continue to help lead this on a national scale. We ask you to join us so that we can continue to strengthen nonprofits, foundations, and the overall social sector.
