Thank You Donors

The Barbara L. Christen Founder’s Circle

Futures and Options relies upon the generosity of corporations, foundations, and individuals to support its programs. The Barbara L. Christen Founder’s Circle recognizes our donors—all of whom make it possible for Futures and Options to provide high-quality career development programming to New York City teens, and reach more students each year. This list reflects donations received in FY2021 (July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021). Every gift helps. We thank you for your continued generosity.
