Gildas Club Presentation

  1. 1. Gilda’s Club New York City Community-to-Community Capital Campaign
  2. 2. “ When cancer happens, it happens to the whole family.” <ul><li>Our Mission </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The mission of Gilda’s Club New York City is to provide meeting places where men, women and children living with cancer - and their families and friends – can join with others to build social and emotional support as a supplement to medical care. Free of charge, we offer support and networking groups, lectures, workshops and social events in a nonresidential, homelike setting. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Gilda’s Club mission embraces the cancer support community concept where members learn from the experts…themselves. Gilda’s Club gives people with cancer – men, women and children with all types of cancer – a place to come, away from a hospital environment, where they can meet and talk with others who are going through the same thing. </li></ul></ul>- Gilda Radner “ There are so many people that need this. We’re just the tip of the iceberg. Gilda’s needs to get that message out and pull those people in.” - Emilie Lowerre-Jambois , Resident Brooklyn, NY
  3. 3. Feasibility Study for Capital Campaign <ul><li>The Feasibility Study was conducted by an outside consultant for objectivity. Margaret Holman Associates is highly recommended and has a strong track record with capital campaigns, as well as conducting feasibility studies. </li></ul><ul><li>Methodology 30 interviews conducted, including: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Board Members </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Business Leaders (especially with strong ties to Brooklyn and Queens; Richard Wilpon, Joanne Minieri) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Members of Gilda’s Club </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Community Leaders (Borough Presidents of Queens, Brooklyn, and The Bronx, NYC Health Commissioner) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Founders (Dr. Joanna Bull, Mandy Patinkin) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Past Honorees (Robin Roberts, Cynthia Leive) </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. The Need for Gilda’s Club New York City to Expand Throughout All of NYC <ul><li>35,000 New Yorkers are diagnosed with cancer each year </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Largest representation is in Brooklyn, followed by Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Each diagnosis effects friends and loved ones; husbands, wives, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Those impacted come from diverse backgrounds and have varying needs for support </li></ul><ul><li>It is our mission to make sure our free support services are equally available to all “New Yorkers” </li></ul><ul><li>Ensure program is culturally sensitive and accessible to everyone </li></ul><ul><li>Currently serving a predominately white population </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Minority groups make up only 25% of members </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It is clear to fill the need that is ever present, we need to be available to everyone living with cancer in New York City </li></ul><ul><li>Programs need to be available where and when members can attend </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Weekends, evenings, and in underserved communities. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. GCNYC Community-to-Community Capital Campaign <ul><li>Raise $1,000,000 over 3 years </li></ul><ul><li>20 GCNYC Community-to Community Satellites throughout All 5 Boroughs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Allow physical space to be secured and renovations for Satellites </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Forge long range partnerships with community and faith-based organizations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pilot program: Opened 3 satellites in 2007 has been very successful </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Congregation Beth Elomin and the Park YMCA in Brooklyn </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Parkchester Enhancement Program in the Bronx </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Provide funding for permanent Mini Clubhouses to be constructed which will serve as anchors for Satellites </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Brooklyn Mini Club House </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Queens Mini Club House </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Will make social and emotional support available for all those touched by cancer in NYC, by having our services easily accessible and conveniently located </li></ul><ul><li>By 2011, GCNYC will be able to more then double the number of member visits we have each year to 20,000 </li></ul>
  6. 6. Expansion of GCNYC Bereavement Support <ul><li>We will also expand our phd bereavement program for adults, as well as our Noogieland Bereavement Program for children to take place at all of GCNYC satellite and mini clubs throughout all five boroughs. </li></ul><ul><li>It is crucial to offer this important emotional support in the most convenient locations possible, especially for the children, which is as close to their home as possible. </li></ul><ul><li>Noogieland is primarily attended by children who have a parent or guardian living with cancer.  However, there is a growing need to expand the scope of the Noogieland program to better accommodate children whose loved ones have died of cancer.  Although the interaction with other children at a Noogieland is helpful, additional bereavement support is needed.  </li></ul><ul><li>The National Mental Health Association has stressed that when a child’s grieving process is denied or avoided, this is likely to lead to severe mental health problems later in life. It is imperative that we provide the children we serve with the best available coping skills to work through their loss </li></ul>“ My mom was diagnosed with cancer when I was in the second grade. She died when I was in the sixth grade-on November 7th 2006. … My mom thought it would be good if I went to Gilda’s Club so that I could meet other kids going through the same situation as me. It really helps to have somebody else in your shoes to talk to.” -Ramona Morris, 12 years old, Resident Queens, NY
