Pace Partnering with Community Fund to Analyze Resources for Bronxville, Eastchester, Tuckahoe

In an effort to identify community needs of programs and services available to its residents, The Community Fund of Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe is partnering with The Helene T. and Grant M. Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship at Pace University on an in-depth needs assessment. The Community Fund is seeking to identify the types of services and resources available to residents, and to address any potential gaps or inadequacies in areas such as human services, health care, housing, public safety, day care, and recreation, among other vital community needs.

“The Community Fund is committed to supporting critical social, health and well-being programs that dramatically improve the lives of the people in our Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe Community,” said Amy Rutter Korb, executive director, The Community Fund. “Our partnership with Pace on this innovative needs assessment will help us not only determine the best programs to be supporting in and around our community, but also help direct the funds we raise to the programs that our community members care most deeply about.”

As part of this year-long partnership between The Community Fund and Pace University, Pace Public Administration and Wilson Center faculty and researchers will develop an in-depth community survey with interviews (all responses will remain confidential) targeting community members and leaders in the areas of public health, human services, business, nonprofits, government and the like. They will then analyze the information and complete a full report with recommendations on areas of need. The Community Fund will disseminate and present the findings in a series of community meetings and public announcements.

“Taking a good hard look at community resources and comparing them to current needs goes a long way to ensuring that no person or group is overlooked, and that The Community Fund is maximizing its reach and impact,” said Rebecca Tekula, Executive Director of the Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship, and professor of public administration at Pace University which is a Member of The BCW. “We are looking forward to working with The Community Fund on such an important endeavor.”
