Threshold Supports New York Womens Foundation

Threshold Fitness Beyond The Physical and Eileen hosted a table of amazing women at the NYWF Breakfast today. At the Breakfast, NYWF pays tribute to remarkable and dynamic women leaders while spotlighting the incredible and vital work being done in the communities by our grantees partners. We hope you will join us in celebrating our honorees and our 80 grantee partners. Your support will enable us to continue to promote long-term economic security, sexual health, and safety for women and their families here in New York.

The New York Women’s Foundation was launched by a small group of dynamic women in 1987, and since then it has matured into a significant, effective and influential institution. The Foundation works under four guiding principles:

  • Decision-making leadership for the Foundation is drawn from a diverse alliance comprising women of wealth, professional women, and community leaders of all backgrounds.
  • Guidance for grantmaking comes directly from the communities to be supported; and grantmaking is principally carried out by volunteer activists.
  • Foundation support reinforces the efforts of organizations seeking viable solutions for individual, community, and broad-based challenges.
  • Foundation grants primarily support women-led, grassroots organizations working on the core economic – and other related – issues of the city’s most under-served women and girls.
