New Yorkers want a way to give back where they can meet like-minded people, learn about amazing organizations, and harness the power of collective giving. And they want something that fits into their busy schedules.
That’s why we created the Giving Collective. It’s a giving circle for Millennial and Gen-X New Yorkers to deepen their giving, tap the expertise of New York Community Trust staff, and explore local nonprofits.

New Immigrant Community Empowerment (NICE) received a $10,000 grant from the Giving Collective for its work helping its clients through the COVID-19 pandemic. The organization has distributed tens of thousands of meals since the crisis hit. It also helped numerous families who have lost loved ones with funerary support and others facing housing needs, wage theft, and other challenges.
The following quote is from Jesus Aviles, a volunteer NICE member who lost his job as a restaurant worker and has since tried to transition to the construction field. While Jesus seeks to get back on his feet, he regularly volunteers at its food distribution program and economic relief program.
“As soon as the pandemic crisis started, NICE opened a food security program offering warm meals, veggies, and healthy essential foods. Our program is open for everyone regardless of race, religion, or immigration status. I personally sought out housing support with NICE. They helped me find a shelter where I’m currently staying and also has offered me and our community continuous virtual classes and workshops that support personal development.”
