A Friend of the NYCHA Award

Some people want it to happen, some wish it to happen, and others make it happen.

A recognition program

The Friend of the NYCHA Award is a recognition program for donors and supporters of the NYCHA who have made a significant financial or personal contribution to NYCHA.

A Friend of the NYCHA Award

There have been many people who have played an important role in the continued growth and success of the youth association; the creation of the Friend of the NYCHA Award will provide much-deserved recognition to those individuals and NCHA corporate sponsors who have “made it happen” year after year. The award will be given annually during the NYCHA awards banquet to youth supporters who have exhibited a long-term commitment to the success of the youth program. If you would like to nominate someone who has made a significant contribution at the national level – either financially or through personal effort – please go online to nominate (a brief summary of the nominee’s contributions) to NCHA no later than June 1st each year. For more information, please contact the NCHA Director of Youth.

The honoree must contribute to NYCHA at a national level that potentially benefits all youth members.
Examples of potential honorees:

  • Scholarship Donor
  • Long-time stallion donor
  • NCHA Corporate Sponsor
  • Youth Committee members
  • Trainers who work with a large number of youth members
