COVID-19 Updates

In support of those struggling in neighborhoods across New York City, Tiger Foundation launched a $5 million Emergency Fund to help get resources to community-based partners who are delivering essential services to vulnerable New Yorkers. We also doubled our grant-making budget for the coming year to commit a total of $26 million to organizations in the five boroughs working on the ground to help those most deeply impacted by this crisis today and as our communities recover. We are also building partnerships with other funders to coordinate support. If you would like to contribute resources to help assist New York City’s community nonprofits in their response to this unprecedented crisis alongside the Tiger Foundation, please contact us.

Between March and June we distributed the $5 million Emergency Response Fund to thirty-one organizations serving communities across New York City. The extraordinary organizations listed below have expanded their services to meet the immediate needs of families in their neighborhoods; have modified program-delivery models to deliver essential, continuous in-person services to those who need their care and support more than ever; have built new programs to meet the childcare needs of first responders; and have put forward remote mental health service offerings to address the needs of young people as they navigate the crisis. We will continue to listen to organizations across the city to understand how we might best help address evolving community needs, and we will look forward to working with our community partners to also prepare for the city’s recovery process in the coming months.
