"The purpose of these popular street fairs is to support a wide-range of community programs in Community Board District 8,” said Jeffrey Bernstein, Chamber Chairman. “Each year, event proceeds are used to support a wide range of community-based nonprofit projects in the area.”

To date, the Chamber has given over $3,000,000 back to the community. Every August, nonprofit organizations in the Community Board 8 district are invited to apply for MCC Community Benefit Fund monies. Applications are due at the end of October. Actual grant monies are distributed in December of each year.
