Special Statement on COVID-19 Impact on Children
“As we all practice social distancing during this unprecedented global health crisis, our hearts and minds are with the vulnerable children who are now separated from their schools and the social support systems that help protect them from abuse and neglect. Now more than ever, they and their families need our help during this time of extreme stress and uncertainty. Help us continue fighting child abuse with a donation to Help For Children. Together, despite the challenges that lie ahead as a result of the outbreak of the coronavirus, we can make the world a safer place for children. “
- Renee Skolaski, Executive Director & CEO, Help For Children
Established in 1998 by the hedge fund industry, Help For Children (formerly known as Hedge Funds Cares) has grown from a single fundraising event in NYC to a global foundation fighting child abuse in multiple locations. Today, Help For Children (HFC) is supported by the broader alternative investment community who has stepped up for this important and under-funded cause: the prevention and treatment of child abuse.
Over the past 22 years, HFC has distributed more than $53 million in grants to organizations that protect and heal children, making the world a safer place for more than 1.1 million children and their families since its inception.

Worldwide, 40 million children are subjected to abuse each year. These children, too young and too scared to seek help, can too easily be hidden from view. HFC, the alternative investment community’s charity, is dedicated to eradicating this silent epidemic.
The alternative investment community is taking a stand because we CAN end child abuse. By uniting as an industry to fight child abuse since 1998, HFC has invested more than $53 million in effective child abuse prevention and treatment programs.
