WHY DONATE TO THRIVR
THRIVR is not currently designated as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, which means each dollar donated to us is crucial! While we are on the path towards non-profit status, we have joined a fantastic collective called NYCON (New York Council of NonProfits) with the intention of scaling our small organization by leveraging ourselves first through partnerships with cancer centers that treat young adults [16-41 years old at the time of being diagnosed].
WHERE WE HAVE COME AND WHERE WE ARE GOING.
Initially founded as a virtual space, THRIVR, is based in Albany New York; less than a three hour drive to Boston and New York City. Our trajectory is focused on maintaining open access for all, across our virtual platform, while growing hybrid services starting in the Upstate New York region.
