Overview

Self-reported by organization

The International Association of New Haven awarded programs that enhance and promote cultural understanding in our diverse community. The amount of $60,000 was evenly divided between three outstanding organizations in the New Haven area: The West Haven Community Collaborative consisting of The West Haven Child Development Center, West Haven Community House and West Haven Public Library was awarded $20,000 to foster intercultural awareness of the unique needs of immigrant children and families as they settle into the community. The Connecticut Children's Museum on Wall Street in New Haven will receive $20,000 for their program Around The World Two. This program will introduce children to four sites: Japan, Latin America, India and the Rain Forests through receiving and reading books and a virtual tour of each site. The Museum's mission is to provide children and their communities with innovative educational programs. $20,000 was awarded to P.L.A.C.E., Partnerships in Learning & Creative Exploration, Inc., in Hamden to expand their ""P.L.A.C.E. on the Go!"" project. This is an exciting and innovative mobile art program that is brought to the community where more children can benefit from exposure to world cultures through hands-on experience with the arts. IRIS, Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services, will continue with their 2014 project, "Public Education about Refugees" (PEAR) that will target schools and universities in the area. In addition, $1000 sponsorship awards were made to The Junta, ARTE and The Peabody Museum's Fiesta Latina to support projects in the community.

Funding Needs

The International Association of Greater New Haven has recently been classified as a Private Foundation because almost all of its grant funds come from internally generated income. IANH will continue to contribute almost all of its income to charitable giving consistent with its mission. IANH needs to broaden its base of contributions from external sources -primarily individual donors - to increase the impact of its funds for local agencies.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

" As an independent charitable foundation, the International Association of New Haven is committed to funding programs that enhance and promote cultural understanding in our diverse community. Founded in 1949 as "The International Center," it was originally established as an organization that provided housing to students, scholars, and their families from all over the world. It quickly became a hub of communal activities not only among its residents but also between the international and local community of greater New Haven. In 2005, upon the sale of the house, we reorganized in 2007 as the International Association of New Haven (IANH), a grant giving organization supporting local projects that enhance and promote international understanding, thus keeping the spirit of the International Center alive. Since its inception as a grant-giving foundation, the International Association of New Haven has awarded more than $200,000 in grants to support programs in the New Haven area. The International Association of New Haven has made the transition from its roots as a programming organization to one that supports our new mission - that of providing grants to organizations that further international understanding within the greater New Haven community. Following a successful launch event in October 2007, IANH has now completed several years of grant giving activity, awarding grants to community and educational groups in the Greater New Haven area. IANH funds have supported a diversity of organizations and projects, all of which contributed in meaningful ways to increased understanding of the complicated world in which we live. IANH has strengthened the Board by adding several new members with diverse backgrounds who bring the skills to take our organization to a new level. We begin this year with a solid foundation, a strong group of dedicated volunteers and an impressive slate of grant recipients. If ever there were a time to encourage global understanding at the local level, it is now. Please join us in supporting the IANH's mission to funding programs that enhance and promote cultural understanding in our diverse community. - Tom Candrick, Board President "
