125th Anniversary Endowment Campaign

Since 1895, Union Settlement has been a part of the fabric of East Harlem, offering a wide variety of vital services to people of all ages. We touch the lives of more than 10,000 people each year, enriching minds, improving health, and building a more connected community. As we prepare to mark our 125th anniversary in 2020, Union Settlement is needed more than ever. In the fall of 2018, Union Settlement embarked on a campaign to raise at least $5 million for its endowment. This endowment will ensure that Union Settlement has the resources needed to continue to provide vital education, wellness and community-building programs to the thousands of East Harlem residents who need them. With this campaign, we prepare for another 125 outstanding years of empowering East Harlem and inspiring its residents from all walks of life.
