SAAGNY

FOUNDATION

OUR
MISSION

The SAAGNY Foundation is the goodwill arm of the Specialty Advertising Association of Greater New York that engages and supports the promotional products community through charitable and educational efforts.  

OUR
HISTORY

The SAAGNY Foundation was created to develop and administer the SAAGNY Scholarship program for the children of our industry. Today, it also works with many charities serving the needy, which include children, disabled persons, and other philanthropic causes.

Early in the Foundation’s life, numerous drives were held to collect overruns of writing instruments, misprints, and discontinued styles. Over the first 5 years, it is estimated that over one million pens and pencils were distributed to various school districts in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

Similar campaigns such as the collection and distribution of clothing, hotel-provided soap, shampoo, and lotion went to homeless shelters in the tri-state area. The Foundation would reach out to nursing homes, rehab centers, and schools for handicapped students every Holiday season to provide them with visits from Santa to distribute toys for the children and employees.

The Foundation summer programs have included the annual full-day for programing at Happiness Is Camping, a camp for children with cancer with their siblings in Hope, NJ. And a similar program at the Hilltop School in Haverstraw, NY with carnival fun and craft activities to children with learning disabilities.

All these efforts were made possible by the generous donations from our supporters in the Promotional Products Industry. There is no better place for charitable support than a Foundation that represents your business.

The SAAGNY Foundation is 100% volunteer-driven and administered. Learn more on how to get involved by reaching out to info@saagnyfoundation.org.
