March is an important month at OHBM-NY. Each year, it is the month we dedicate to supporting our programs across the five boroughs through an aggressive fundraising campaign. This effort culminates in our Annual Gala event—this year named the Day of the One Hundred, to be held on Thursday, March 31.
Through community activism, educational programs, and focused philanthropy, OHBM has been the preeminent civic nonprofit in the Black community since its inception in 1963 and has given rise to over 100 chapters and tens of thousands of members across 48 states and internationally. Since its founding, OHBM has worked with government, corporations, and community leaders in New York and around the country to create programs and organizations that serve low-income communities and transform economic and social policy. Our distinguished members, including leaders from across the business, political, and nonprofit sectors, donate our time, influence and resources to provide meaningful programs and initiatives. These include scholarships and educational support for young people; one-on-one and group mentoring; economic empowerment and financial assistance; health and wellness initiatives for families; and a reliable, unwavering voice and support for the Black and Brown community. Despite a year of civil unrest, economic instability, and the pandemic, our efforts are continuing to expand.
