Dear Volunteers, Thank you! --NYWSE

As we start 2010, New York Women Social Entrepreneurs (NYWSE) would like to express our gratitude to all of our amazing volunteers.

Dear volunteers, thank you!

NYWSE volunteers have donated over 6,285 hours of professional services which have helped the organization grow. NYWSE would not be able to offer the high-quality, cutting-edge programs and services it does without the help of its dedicated volunteers--whose total in-kind donations amount to US$100,000.*

Since January 2008, NYWSE has grown to a membership of over 1,000 women, hosts monthly events on social innovation, and runs four programs--including the Incubator, Mastermind Mentoring Initiative (MMI), Book Club, and Emerging Sustainability Leaders (ESL) Program.

We look forward to continuing to grow with you, the NYWSE community.  Thank you for your continued interest and support.

Please join us in celebrating the successes of 2009 by recognizing our outstanding volunteers!
