Times are tough, but New York City is tougher.

It's a challenging time all over the country, and it feels even harder and more painful right now in New York City. We're feeling that too. We've all still got a ways to go to overcome this crisis, but we know that New York will also be a beacon of hope to the world. Just as sure as we’re facing challenging times now, so too will we roll up our sleeves and heal, rebuild, and recover with that tenacity and grit you can only find in New York City. 

Working together, even as we practice social distancing and follow the CDC's and the Health Department's guidelines, we know we'll get through this. Check out the projects below that are crowdfunding right now to respond to this crisis, or, start your own project. 


Double your donations

When you crowdfund for a project that provides relief for low-income neighbors who might be hardest hit by this crisis, we'll match up to $8,000 and we'll waive our fiscal sponsorship and platform fees. Relief projects should be led or co-led by residents of the neighborhoods that projects take place in, and/or people personally affected by the issues the project addresses. Project leaders should have strong relationships with the communities they plan to serve.

Eligible projects include providing essential emergency supplies like food, baby supplies, medication and more; Providing masks, gloves, and other protective gear to low-wage essential workers; providing tech and internet access to those that need them; offering affordable health services like prenatal care, trauma counseling, and mental health services; learn more about eligibility for this program here.
