December 18, 2019.- We are excited to announce that Qualitas of Life Foundation received $25,000 from Blackstone Charitable Foundation as a part of Blackstone’s BX Gives Back Challenge. The challenge, hosted by Blackstone Charitable Foundation, invited Blackstone employees to submit proposals to award grants to the charities of their choice.
With this grant, Qualitas of Life Foundation will extend our financial education program to more Hispanic families in the Tri-state area.

Ultimately the group was narrowed down to 10 finalists.
