New York

Begun in 1998, Help For Children New York was the first branch of HFC.  With the active support of the hedge fund industry, HFC New York has distributed over $20 million in 532 grants. 

New York grant making is also actively supported by the Committee of Hope, originally formed in 2003 and the East Coast Golf Committee which was formed in 2008.  These committees hold an eagerly awaited gala each year, an annual Fall Fete and a golf tournament.  The New York Young Professionals Committee was recently relaunched and joins the other East Coast supporters in championing the HFC mission.  

In 2018, with the formation of Private Equity Cares New York, the New York branch will extend its reach across the broader alternative investment community, increasing our ability to provide support to those organizations committed to the protection and healing of children in need.
