Over the course of twelve years the organization has provided upwards of $150,000 in scholarships, invested $35,000 to rebuild the cafeteria at PS 37, a special needs school, pumped over $2.2 million back into the community after Hurricane Sandy, and received the honor of being named number one out of nine in an article published by the Huffington Post entitled “9 Ways 9/11 Inadvertently Sparked Good in the World”. The Bini Fund was also the 2015 Recipient of the Bayonne Bridge Award given by the SIEDC.
The organization’s newest initiative is to combat the drug epidemic our island is facing by opening a free and unbiased resource center called Carl’s House to help bridge the gap between addiction and recovery for addicts and their families.
