ALBANY — St. Anne Institute, an agency that has been providing therapeutic programs and services for young women, individuals, and families for over 100 years, has recently received a $100k donation from Business for Good.
Founded by local philanthropists, Ed and Lisa Mitzen, Business for Good is a non-profit committed to investing in people and communities by providing access to resources and support to the underserved and those in need. BFG’s donation will help jump start the capital improvements that are needed to modernize and repair some of the older structures at the agency.
Business for Good and St. Anne Institute both believe in helping others. Their partnership will allow St. Anne Institute to improve and modernize its currently successful offerings and advance the positive impact on their clients, including gained confidence and applicable skills that make them better equipped to overcome crisis in their lives.
“Business for Good is aligned with St. Anne Institute’s mission of changing lives for the better by providing the tools and resources to help people thrive,” said Ed Mitzen, Business for Good Co-Founder. “We are excited to support their next phase of success.”
The Capital Campaign was launched in August of 2021 with a goal of reaching $4.5 million to provide the improvements and modernization to the Agency. Projects such as a much-needed elevator to updated air filtration improvements are a few in the long list of items on St. Anne’s checklist. The $100,000 donated by Business for Good will be used to begin such projects. St. Anne Institute is grateful for the generous support from BFG, which will allow them to continue the mission to help any child, adult, or family entrusted to their care.
