50Bricks_400.pngIn October 2017, Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist, launched the 50 Bricks Matching Challenge to expand and strengthen NYC Veterans Alliance programs, brick by brick.

With an initial gift of $50,000, Craig has challenged donors to be among the first 50 to donate $1,000 or more to establish a firm, lasting foundation to help us build impactful programs that advance veterans and families as civic leaders. These donors will be known in perpetuity as the NYC Veterans Alliance's 50 Bricks Donors.
