Join us in raising $1 million by June 30, 2020 for the COVID-19 Response & Recovery Fund. 

The 2020 Resilience-NYC: COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund provides organizations funding to solve critical issues facing vulnerable and marginalized communities in New York City. 

The 2020 Resilience-NYC: COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund is providing $1,000,000 in grants to organizations helping women, transgender, gender nonconforming, non-binary (TGNCNB) individuals, and their families most impacted by COVID-19. Marginalized populations are among the most vulnerable during times of crisis, along with the local organizations that know how to best support them. The COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund will provide vital resources to organizations on the front lines for some of the hardest hit communities to address immediate and long-term needs.

The COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund follows The Foundation's belief that problems and solutions are often found in the same place. The Foundation invests in those who are embedded in the most vulnerable communities and therefore, uniquely understands the needs of these communities and how to best affect change. The COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund targets these smaller change-makers and organizations that often fall under the radar of support funding.

Through the COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund, The Foundation is supporting organizations that prioritize the following communities: low-income immigrants, survivors of gender-based violence, Chinese and other East Asian communities, Muslims/Arab/South Asian communities, individuals with disabilities, LGBTQ, TGNCNB individuals, older adult women, women small-business owners and worker-owned cooperatives.

The COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund will help organizations address the following needs: 

  • Supporting organizations to be responsive to urgent community needs including meal delivery services, access to healthcare and housing, easing financial burdens of those who have lost wages or income
  • Offer recovery and support services and initiatives
  • Advocate for changes in public policy and corporate culture including paid leave, living wages, economic relief for small business owners, and more
  • Allow organizations to invest in advanced technology and tools needed to serve their community

Rooted in a tradition of Radical Generosity, The Foundation is launching the new fund to support the needs of its grantee partners as they navigate the impacts of COVID-19 and respond to the needs of their community. As the nonprofit sector continues to face new and mounting challenges in this unprecedented time, it is the continued generosity of donors and corporate partners that enables The Foundation to continue its investment in women and aide in the fight against the ever-evolving issues they face.

We will continue to uplift the work of grantee partners with weekly messages. You can view The Foundation’s community updates on our website by clicking here.
