NY+Acumen is one of 20 global +Acumen chapters. +Acumen is an important part of Acumen’s work because creating a world beyond poverty will take all of us-an interconnected community of global citizens equipped with the moral leadership needed to meet the complex challenges of our time.
The New York chapter was the first +Acumen chapter, started back in 2009. Initially called ‘Young Professionals for Acumen Fund,’ the volunteer-led group was started by a couple of ambitious and passionate individuals, determined to build a community of other Acumen enthusiasts in New York City. They took it upon themselves to build a team and prove its value to Acumen, hosting events to build awareness and raise funds for Acumen. Before long, Acumen realized the huge potential of the chapter, and began supporting similar individuals in other cities throughout the world.
