Erin Sawaya has been named the new Grants Manager at The Boys’ Club of New York (BCNY).

“I’m so excited to be here at BCNY,” said Sawaya “and to have the opportunity to use my background and experience to increase funding for this great organization.”
“Erin is a talented professional with outstanding research and communication skills,” said Executive Director Stephen Tosh, “We see great opportunities to increase our foundation revenue and think Erin, with the help of our trustees and executive staff, is the right person to manage this critical fundraising area.”
