There’s no better life led than one led trying to make others succeed.
Greyston is a 501(c)3 nonprofit social justice enterprise working to create job opportunities and provide services through our Open Hiring business model. Our foundation manages Greyston Bakery, a B-Corp with a triple bottom line to people, planet, and profit. The monies we generate through our bakery are reinvested into the bakery and development programs for our Open Hire bakers and the underserved members of our community with barriers to employment.
Why Support Greyston?
Through the support of our generous donors in 2020, Greyston:
- Generated over $11.2 million in overall economic impact to the local community, including over $4.5 million in public savings.
- Served 116 clients through Greyston Workforce Development. These clients earn on average 20% above minimum wage when placed in jobs after completing WD trainings.
- Helped generate over 1,300 new jobs through Inclusive Hiring practices with partner corporations such as The Body Shop, Rhino Foods, and Giant Eagle.
To continue serving our clients and the Yonkers community, we need your support. With your help, Greyston can reach our goal of unlocking over $3 billion in economic impact by 2030 through providing employment opportunities to Americans sitting on the sidelines who wish to work.
