Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: June 14, 2023
Capitolis has announced its fourth annual Capitolis Connects programme that focuses on supporting local human service organisations in New York, London, and Tel Aviv doing innovative and impactful work to serve these communities.
For the month of June, Capitolis will donate a portion of all transactional revenue from its platform to local organisations selected by each local employee base. Employees of Capitolis will also personally volunteer their time at each of these local organisations.
In 2023, the organisations supported are:
- Covenant House, New York – Covenant House helps transform and save the lives of more than a million homeless, runaway, and trafficked young people in the New York area;
- Coalition for the Homeless – Grand Central Food Program, New York – The Grand Central Food Program, part of Coalition for the Homeless, was founded in 1985 the day after a homeless woman died of starvation in Grand Central Terminal. They deliver approximately 1,000 hot, nutritious meals to homeless and hungry individuals and families on the streets of NYC every night of the year;
- Compliments of The House, London – Compliments of the House is a food redistribution charity in London that collects fresh, surplus food and delivers it to vulnerable individuals and families;
- Notnim BeAhavah, Tel Aviv – Notnim BeAhavah “Giving with Love” is just that: giving to those who are in need, as equals and from love. Helping a child who’s in a state of risk, aiding families who are below the poverty line, being there for the lonely elder and turning Israel into a better place.
“At Capitolis, we remain committed to giving back to our communities and to help those who need it most. We are proud and extremely excited to continue Capitolis Connects and work with our selected human service organisations this year,” says Gil Mandelzis, CEO and founder, Capitolis. “These organisations are near and dear to our hearts. We look forward to continuing to support meaningful causes through acts of service.”
Capitolis says over $100,000 has been raised in the first three years of the programme, as part of this year’s effort Capitolis will be hosting three events across each of its markets in New York City, London, and Tel Aviv to honour the organisations.
