NEW YORK, June 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Concordia is pleased to announce that it has received a gift of $1 million from the Arnall Family Foundation.
"We are truly grateful to the Arnall Family Foundation for their generous support of Concordia and our mission to create a more prosperous future by building partnerships across sectors," said Concordia's Co-Founder and CEO, Matthew A. Swift.
These funds will support Concordia's social impact work and enable the organization to expand our Campaign arm. Concordia Campaigns narrow our programmatic, research, and networking focus to tackle a particularly pressing global problem. A Campaign draws attention to an issue and catalyzes action for maximum social impact around that issue. Concordia's Campaign Against Labor Trafficking was launched in July 2015 to fight labor trafficking in corporate supply chains, specifically in the Thai fishing industry.
"After witnessing the impact that Concordia has had in the countries and industries where it has focused its Campaigns, I felt as if they truly could change the world with a little more support. I am very happy to give them this support," remarked Sue Ann Arnall, President of the Arnall Family Foundation.
With the generous gift from the Arnall Family Foundation, Concordia will be able to launch a series of Campaigns focusing on other pressing global issues to leverage our platform for positive social change.
"There is no issue too large or too complex we can't tackle if we work together. The Arnall Family Foundation allows us to maximize Concordia's ability to facilitate partnerships for positive, lasting social impact," Concordia's Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board, Nicholas M. Logothetis, explained.
The Arnall Family Foundation empowers a community of partners through high impact programs that improve the lives of disadvantaged youth and companion animals. Sue Ann Arnall, President of the Arnall Family Foundation, has also joined Concordia's Board of Directors. Her commitment to philanthropy will guide Concordia's long-term vision of enabling effective public-private partnerships for positive societal impact.
Concordia enables public-private partnerships to create a more prosperous and sustainable future. It is a platform for leaders who are passionate about public- private partnerships (P3s). Through programming, research, and issue-based campaigns, Concordia raises the visibility of P3s and demonstrates how they can be used to help solve the world's most pressing challenges. Nicholas M. Logothetis and Matthew A. Swift founded Concordia in 2011. For more information please visit www.concordia.net.
