Frontline Voices: Lorie Slutsky on responding to crises

The Trust has engaged with experts who are on the front lines helping New Yorkers through the COVID-19 pandemic and addressing the renewed calls for racial justice.

These interactive briefings give our donors a chance to meet community changemakers while providing updates on the various fields we support.

In this briefing, Trust President Lorie Slutsky explains why community foundations such as The New York Community Trust are well suited to quickly and effectively help in times of crisis.

During her 30-plus years leading The Trust, Lorie has responded to some of the most challenging crises in the city’s history, including 9/11, superstorm Sandy, and this year’s COVID-19 pandemic. In each, she and The Trust have learned tough lessons about the phases of each crisis, and how to help the city rebuild stronger.
