Buffalo Promise Neighborhood To Receive Up To $6 Million From Annie E. Casey Foundation

BUFFALO, N.Y., November 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Buffalo Promise Neighborhood (BPN) today announced that it will receive up to $6 million in funding over the next several years from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, a private national philanthropy that works to create better futures for children by strengthening families, building economic opportunities and transforming neighborhoods into safer and healthier places to live, work and grow. 

The Buffalo Promise Neighborhood is one of three communities in the United States to receive funding from the foundation as part of a strategy that complements the cradle-to-college-and-career continuum of services that BPN is building to transform the 14215 neighborhood and surrounding community within the City of Buffalo.

"The Casey Foundation strongly believes that children do well when their families do well, and that families thrive when they live in supportive communities," said Ryan Chao, the Foundation's vice president for civic sites and community change. "We look forward to working with Buffalo Promise Neighborhood, a likeminded partner, to create a more family-focused approach to community development, helping to transform this neighborhood into a place where kids and their parents thrive."

"With this new support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, we have more than doubled the funding that we obtained through the original Promise Neighborhood grant.  These additional resources will strengthen and intensify our efforts to transform an economically distressed community, and restore hope and promise to the children and families in this neighborhood," said Mark J. Czarnecki, President of M&T Bank and Chairman of the Buffalo Promise Neighborhood Board of Directors.   

The FCCC is premised on a two generation family approach that provides programming for children and their families that focus on healthy development, growth and education, and services for adults that concentrate on parenting, job skills and financial security.
