Rooted in our Radical Generosity tradition, The New York Women’s Foundation is responding to the challenges posed by COVID-19 with an abundance of caution and an abundance of determination to support the needs of women and families in New York City.
In alignment with our mission to create a just & equitable future for all, The Foundation is launching the 2020 Resilience-NYC: COVID-19 Response & Recovery Fund to support the growing organizational needs of current & former grantee partners.
Out of an abundance of caution, our annual Celebrating Women Breakfast has been postponed to Friday, June 12, 2020. We deeply value our community of supporters and will take necessary precautions to ensure their wellbeing.
Margarita Guzman, Executive Director of the Violence Intervention Program; Kavita Mehra, Executive Director of Sakhi for South Asian Women; and Zeinab Eyega, Executive Director of Sauti Yetu, look at the challenges unique to immigrant women facing gender-based violence in the United States on this episode of The Takeaway with Tanzina Vega on WNYC. They are also joined by Rocio Delgado, grantee partner speaker at the 2019 Celebrating Women Breakfast.
The Foundation is providing $1,000,000 in grants to current and former grantee partners helping women, transgender, gender nonconforming, non-binary (TGNCNB) individuals and their families most impacted by COVID-19.
