Dear Friends,

On behalf of our Governing Board, our Gala Celebration Committee and our extraordinary staff, I am thrilled to announce our 10th Anniversary Gala, with the theme, Honor the Past; Shape the Future.

On April 19, 2017, at Cipriani 42nd St® in New York City, four hundred and fifty of our closest friends will join us for an elegant and inspirational evening. Together, we will celebrate our esteemed Honorees and our long-treasured relationships with partners, friends and colleagues built together over the past decade.

A reception, dinner, silent auction and, of course, the entertainment for which we have become known, are just a few of the evening’s events that will inspire and engage!

Please join me in supporting our transformative work in communities around the world by becoming a Sponsor of our 2017 gala. Each sponsorship package offers visibility, recognition on Gala materials and media exposure. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet our influential network of donors and supporters, all of whom seek sustainablechange that promotes justice, reconciliation and peace.

Tickets, Tables and Journal Ads are another great way to show your support!

I promise – a memorable evening awaits, filled with surprises, in the company of colleagues who, like you, invest in the promise and practice of uniting across lines of difference in our common pursuit of working toward a just world.

Fabulous attire preferred!

Warm regards,


Rev. Robert Chase
Founding Director
