BRC Awarded Nonprofit Excellence Award

by the New York Community Trust

BRC is proud to be named a winner of the 2015 New York Community Trust Nonprofit Excellence Awards, in which we claimed the Bronze award.

“Just because you’re a nonprofit doesn’t mean you’re entitled, you need to be excellent,” BRC’s Executive Director, Muzzy Rosenblatt said. “So to have this process that focuses on excellence I think moves us in the right direction to say, ‘So why can’t everyone in the sector be excellent?’ And if somebody isn’t excellent, those of us in the sector, not just those who fund us, should say, ‘You’re an embarrassment, step up or step out because the work is too important, the sector is too important the reputation is too important to allow those who can’t perform, who aren’t excellent or even adequate, to tarnish the work of so many other good organizations.’  We have to demand excellence.”

Rather than create wealth for private developers, could we use the same shelter contract to create housing for low-income people?
