New York City Funders Join Forces to Launch The NYC COVID-19 Response & Impact Fund
The NYC COVID-19 Response & Impact Fund was created to aid nonprofit service providers struggling with the health and economic effects of the coronavirus. It will give grants and loans to NYC-based nonprofits that are trying to meet the new and urgent needs that are hitting the city. Priority will be given to nonprofits addressing essential healthcare and food insecurity as well as arts and culture, because New York is the cultural capital of the nation. Your gift will help nonprofits with a variety of needs, including protective equipment, cleaning supplies, technological assistance, and support for financial losses.
The fund is made possible by a partnership of Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, Joan Ganz Cooney & Holly Peterson Fund, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, The Estée Lauder Companies Charitable Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Kenneth C. Griffin Charitable Fund, the JPB Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the New York Community Trust, the Charles H. Revson Foundation, Robin Hood, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Jennifer and Jonathan Allan Soros, Jon Stryker and Slobodan Randjelović, the Laurie M Tisch Illumination Fund, the UJA-Federation of New York, and Wells Fargo Foundation.
Since 1924, The Trust has been and continues to be a critical part of New York’s philanthropic response. The Trust co-created the September 11th Fund after the attack on the World Trade Center, and has worked on issues affecting New Yorkers for decades...
