We are deeply saddened to announce the death of our dear friend and beloved colleague, John Wright.
A tireless advocate for his fellow New Yorkers, John inspired us with his compassion and steadfast dedication to lifting up the nonprofit sector and working to ensure equity in all of New York’s communities. A celebration of John’s life will be held in the coming days, and we will share those details here. Until then, we ask that you keep John, his family, and John’s many cherished friends in your thoughts and prayers. - The Wright Group
