Sustain a Connected Neighborhood, Donate to SENA Today!
Standish Ericsson Neighborhood Association has been serving the community for over 30 years. While we do receive a stipend from the City equal to $2.50 per resident per year, it is not enough to meet the expense of operating, even on a shoestring, or delivering resident driven programs and events.
Additionally, the City’s Neighborhoods 2020 process will effectively reduce SENA’s funding by over 80% starting with a 40% cut in 2021. Neighborhood funding is being redistributed based on areas of concentrated poverty in the City to address racial disparities. We applaud the City’s intentions, but the impact of this redistribution will be devastating to SENA. Our dependence on the City for resources, also restricts what we are able to accomplish. However, if every household in the Standish-Ericsson neighborhoods, all 5,120 would make an annual donation of just $40 or more, we would eliminate our dependence on the city and have more freedom to act on neighborhood priorities.
Please take a moment to make a gift today. 100% of your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent the law allows and 100% stays right here in the neighborhood.
