Jean Shafiroff In Oscar de la Renta

Jean Shafiroff, noted philanthropist who is actively involved as a volunteer fundraiser and leader of several New York City and Southampton charitable causes, has been elected to NYC Mission Society’s Board of Directors, effective October 15, 2014.

Ms. Shafiroff already has devoted her time to helping NYC Mission Society. On March 12, 2014, Ms. Shafiroff was honored by NYC Mission Society at its annual Gala and received the Dina Merrill Award for Public Service. She co-chaired a successful event in East Hampton on August 30th and the nonprofit’s Bicentennial Gala in December 2012, and she is co-chairing the annual Gala planned for Spring 2015.

“I believe deeply in the work of NYC Mission Society and how it changes the lives of our most underserved children in New York City. NYC Mission Society is interested in adding business and community leaders to its Board – individuals who are focused on advancing our city's children forward through education and supportive after school programs,” Jean Shafiroff said. “I am here to support the Board and Elsie McCabe Thompson, who I believe is moving NYC Mission forward with strong leadership.”
