WHY WE RAISE FUNDS
Philo4Thought Hellenic Mentoring Initiative is a 501(c)3 philanthropic educational nonprofit foundation dedicated to helping students and young professionals build the skills they need to succeed in work and in life. 2019 marked our 10th year of community outreach and charitable service.
To date, we have helped over 235,000 individuals through online and print publications, monthly and annual events, and related charitable work. We continue to collaborate with local, regional, national and global organizations to seek and create quality opportunities for today's young professional.
In 2018, we established the Career Mission @ Cathedral (formerly our "Mentoring Monday" workshop), hosted once a month at the Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in NYC. CMC is a monthly discussion group that operates as a "safe space" to discuss professional and academic questions, review resumes, etc. in a small-group setting. These events are open to the public and cater to youth ~17 and older. For more information about our upcoming CMC group meetings, visit our Events Page or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your financial sponsorship helps us meet the following goals:
research and identify quality Opportunities and Resources for academic and professional advancement;
continue and expand our Internship Program;
conduct broad outreach to identify and recruit Peer Mentors and Young Professional Honorees with records of outstanding philanthropic achievement, working with local state representatives to prepare certificates of merit recognizing their contributions;
conduct broad outreach to identify and recruit recipients of our annual College-Bound Young Scholars stipend for high-performing underprivileged young people who overcame serious obstacles to maintain top grades and pursue highly competitive professional and academic opportunities -- with a special certificate of merit offered by the NYS Attorney General to honor their outstanding achievements;

prepare and improve free online programming for our global readership.
Your financial support can make our collaborative vision for the educational advancement possible for innovative young professionals in our global Hellenic community now and for many generations to come.
We are also available to visit specific groups and schools to train small groups in a variety of professional development topics for an exceptionally lower rate than other professional coaches and advisory firms. Our team consists of top-notch professionals and peer mentors who address your needs. We are here for you.
