41°-74° CLUB OF NEW YORK - PHILANTHROPY
Philanthropy is one of the main pillars of the 41°-74° Club that makes us stand out from other travel/hospitality industry organizations. The club hosts a Holiday Luncheon each December which raises thousands of dollars for worthy charities. Our Philanthropic Committee carefully researches local charities to ascertain the best recipients of these contributions. We also often support other causes as the need arises through the generosity of our members
DONATE TO 41-74 CLUB OF NEW YORK
Harlem Grown is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire youth to lead healthy and ambitious lives through mentorship and hands-on education in urban farming, sustainability, and nutrition. Founded in 2011, we operate local urban farms, increase access to and knowledge of healthy food for Harlem residents, and provide garden-based development programs to Harlem youth.
Healthy habits start young, which is why our programs target elementary-aged students. Because food justice is more than just providing and distributing food, our model seeks to positively impact the entire community through mentorship, education, and partnerships to create sustainable change.
One of the many ways we fulfill our mission is by raising support for the physical renovation of abandoned lots in Harlem, transforming them into thriving urban farms. Currently, we have 10 urban agriculture facilities ranging from soil-based farms, hydroponic greenhouses and school gardens.
