The Lynn Manger Initiative

On May 12, 2021, upon the occasion of the retirement of our founder, Lynn Manger, NYC-Parents In Action, Inc. introduced The Lynn Manger Initiative. The Initiative is a fund created to honor Lynn Manger, Parents in Action Founder, past President, Chair and Chair Emeritus, and her 43 years of service to NYC-PIA.

Our hope is that the launch of this fund will be the first step toward a strong future in which we can continue the work that Lynn began over 40 years ago.

The Lynn Manger Initiative will support NYC-Parents in Action’s mission to keep parents involved, informed and connected for the next 40 years, and, we hope, beyond. Wherever there are parents eager to connect, and parents hungry for good information, NYC-PIA will be there, to educate and facilitate.  The Lynn Manger Initiative will enable us to honor that pledge.
