New Directors elected to The Catalog’s Board

The Catalog has welcomed several new Directors in 2015: Michael Nash, Senior Managing Director, Blackstone ; Adam Schwartz , Managing Director, Angelo Gordon; and Richard Wagman, Managing Partner, Madison Capital.  And last month the board added the Executive Directors of two programs that recently “graduated” from The Catalog after being part of two of our three-year cycles: Amanda Kraus of Row NYC and Suzy Myers Jackson from Opening Act. Said Board President, Ken Horn, “We are fortunate to have such a wide range of talent and broad commitment to NYC youth on the Catalog’s board.”

It’s still a work in progress, but we think you’ll enjoy the new look. Please check back regularly for updates on our terrific programs, news about the young participants, events at The Catalog and our programs and other news of interest to those who support NYC youth development.


2015 Urban Heroes Awards Benefit to honor Greta Guggenheim

The Catalog is proud to honor Corporate Urban Hero, Greta Guggenheim, Co-Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Ladder Capital, and to celebrate our 15 Young Urban Heroes, a child from each of our partner programs who perseveres in learning new skills to reach for dreams. They hail from all parts of NYC, and have committed themselves to a better future by participating in our wonderful programs that empower the next generation with sports, arts, academics, college readiness, mentoring, alternatives to incarceration and immigrant rights. Our programs are diverse and so are our heroes. Come meet them and celebrate with us on October 13th at The Pierre. Proceeds will be distributed to our member programs. Click here to purchase tickets.
