Westchester Index

The Westchester Index is an equity-focused community indicators project with data and analysis spanning six topic areas and 65 individual indicators. We aim to provide information that the Westchester community can use to examine and address disparities across racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic divides.

At RXR, we believe we are only as strong and successful as the communities where we operate. We partnered with The Trust to maximize our social impact with mission-driven organizations integral to building a stronger community in New Rochelle and the surrounding areas.

Scott Rechler, CEO and chairman of RXR Realty (NY)

In philanthropy, I think it's important to put your dollars where your values are. It takes resources to bring good into the world, so we should commit to causes that are important to us and support them.

Hallie S. Hobson, Harlem-based founder and principal of HSH Consulting, LLC, donor-advised fund holder

Again and again, I urge clients to consider The Trust. The staff scours this region for the best nonprofits, then weaves together donors' funds to make a real difference.
