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
Begun in 1998, Help For Children New York was the first branch of HFC. With the active support of the alternative asset community , HFC New York has distributed over $20 million in 532 grants.
New York grant making is actively supported by our dedicated group of volunteers. The Committee of Hearts holds an eagerly anticipated Benefit each year. New York also hosts HFC Rocks, our annual rock concert. In 2016, we launched the HFC New York Poker Tournament, which is a lively and exciting night for all. Our New York Golf Committee has a yearly golf tournament that is always a great outing. The New York Young Professionals Committee is a robust group supporters and champions of 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.
Help. Enjoy. Connect.
