Thank you for celebrating with us!

Renaissance was proud to celebrate its 25th year anniversary on July 21st, 2022. In attendance were esteemed funders, partners, and REDC’s small business clients, all of whom have had a hand in propelling the organization’s mission to empower low-to-moderate income and minority communities in New York City.

Renaissance’s Anniversary Event not only reflected on all that the organization has accomplished over the past 25 years, but also placed emphasis on the bright future of Renaissance. With the theme of the night being Reimagination and Transformation, Renaissance proudly unveiled its many digital pivots, including the launch of a new website and logo, as well as a sneak peek of the organization’s upcoming transition into a new CRM system on Salesforce.

Renaissance’s mission to serve and uplift the immigrant and minority communities of NYC could not be accomplished if not for the dedicated help of its funders. At the event, Renaissance presented JP Morgan Chase & Co. with the Access to Capital award for their continued commitment to the NYC small business community. Wells Fargo was also presented with a Digital Transformation Program Award in recognition of its contributions to helping small businesses access greater resources in a digital landscape. We also recognized the small businesses who participated in Renaissance’s Digital Transformation Program, all of whom have made tremendous strides in their digital presence and business growth.

Although Renaissance's Managing Director, Jessie Lee, was unable to attend the event in person, she was present virtually, live and in full hosting mode, greeting guests and sharing her vision for the direction that Renaissance is poised to take in the next 25 years.
