FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
10 October 2014
Buffalo, New York – The Center for Development and Strategy received its first donation and capital investment on Wednesday October 8, 2014. The donation came from Anthony Fiorenza, a senior at the State University of New York at Buffalo majoring in Economics. Mr. Fiorenza donated $1,500.00 in his first capital installment to CDS. Part of these resources will be used immediately to fund CDS’s incorporation as a not-for-profit corporation and 501(c)(3) application with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The rest will be used over a longer period of time for marketing and contracting expenses in order to viably grow CDS’s outreach potential.
Executive Director of CDS, David Harary, said, “we couldn’t be more thankful to Anthony for his generous donation and support. This will allow us to accomplish both small and large goals that we wouldn’t have been able to complete otherwise. I look at this donation not as charity, but as an investment to come.”
