Job Description

NOT THE FINAL SCRIPT

Children are the anchors that hold a mother to life.
Sophocles

Our History

More than 20 years ago The Needlers Foundation was created by the New York Garment Industry in an effort to help children.

The Needlers has grown over the years from holding one event a year to a triptych of events and Gala Annual that has raised over 2 million dollars.

The Needlers host a wide range of events and promotions geared around special events. Currently the staff to volunteer ratio is 1 staff member to 122 volunteers. Grant requests are accepted from non-profit organizations providing direct services to children. These requests are submitted to the closet chapter’s Board of Trustees at the end of each year for evaluation. Each Board’s objective is to assist as many children in need as possible. Since its inception, The Needlers has awarded millions of dollars with more than 14 million dollars in the last 10 years alone nationally. In 2004, the Charities raised over 2 million dollars and awarded grants to in excess of 4 non-profit children’s groups, representing an impact to more than 300,000 children in need.

Our Philosophy

The Needlers philosophy has remained the same. For a charity to truly be successful it must operate with a small overhead, using volunteers and corporate partners for materials and sponsorships whenever possible.

By those associated with The Needlers remembering we’re a charity and not a social extension or promotional vehicle for people or organizations, we make a strong impact on our communities. The Needlers continues the philosophy of low cost / high net returns on all events or programs. This assures that as much money as possible goes to the children’s groups.

The primal duties shine aloft, like stars;
The charities that soothe and heal and bless
Are scattered at the feet of man like flowers.
-William Wordsworth
