GCEF Grantee Sustainability Panel Discussion and Celebration Event

On November 13, 2019, GCEF hosted a special event for its grantees to learn from a diverse panel of professional grantors about continuing their work in Greenpoint. Grantors offered their advice on best practices for identifying, applying for, and winning continued funding, and answered attendees’ questions.

The grantor panelists included: Elizabeth Tully (Wildlife Conservation Society), Heather Lubov (City Parks Foundation), Michael Mullaley (City Parks Foundation), Melissa Enoch (New York City Department of Environmental Protection), and Patrick Foster (New York State Department of Environmental Conservation). The panel discussion was moderated by Lynn Dwyer from National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.

A total of approximately 50 participants, including GCEF grantees, representatives of GCEF’s Community Advisory Panel, and other community members attended the event at A/D/O in Greenpoint. The panel was followed by a celebration to thank them for all their successful work in “greening” Greenpoint.
