Chief of Administration and Finance, NYC Kids RISE
A proud alumnus of P.S. 69 and the Founding Chief of Administration and Finance at NYC Kids RISE, Murray Abeles works with NYC Kids RISE’s technology partners to ensure all back-end systems are set up to allow for the continued funding of all NYC Scholarship Accounts and the maintenance and improvements of the Savings Tracker platform, used by thousands of families to access and view their accounts. Murray gave the Kindergarten commencement address at his alma mater in June 2019 where NYC Kids RISE announced the Seamless Community Scholarship. Every child with an NYC Scholarship at that time received an additional $48.89 in their NYC Scholarship Account.
