To address the ongoing needs resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic, The Trust created the Emergency Fund.
The Fund has received a generous challenge from Jane Mead Timken to match dollar-for-dollar all contributions up to a total of $500,000.
The Emergency Fund will send needed dollars to an array of nonprofits that are struggling to help New Yorkers facing the loss of income, food, shelter, and health care. The Emergency Fund will address both the immediate needs of New Yorkers as well as the new challenges that will emerge in the weeks and months to come.
The Trust will draw upon its 95 years of experience, including its emergency response to the September 11 terrorist attacks and superstorm Sandy. Our staff, working with the Board, will use its expertise to target nonprofits that are best suited to tackle these challenges.
