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. 

The New York Committee of Hearts holds an eagerly awaited gala each March to support the region’s grant making process.   The 18th annual benefit will be held on March 10, 2016 at the New York Public Library. With this event, honoring Don MacNeal of EY and spearheaded by Bruce Berger, Joe Fisher,  Cindy Gavin and Jay Peller, the Committee is looking forward to a huge success to allow it to fund even more community based organizations that work to prevent and treat child abuse.

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 a yearly Fall Fete and golf tournament respectively.  The New York Young Professionals Committee was recently relaunched and joins the other East Coast supporters in championing the HFC mission.  

In 2016, 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.  Led by Mikael Johnson of KPMG, the group is actively planning their first event to be held Fall 2016.  Watch for more information on this exciting new venture!
