About ReisenbachThe John A. Reisenbach Foundation is the premier charitable organization of New York's media and advertising communities. The Foundation was established in 1991, one year after the random and senseless murder of 33 year old John Reisenbach in Greenwich Village. John was vice president of national advertising sales for what was then All American Television. The John A. Reisenbach Foundation was created to honor his life and memory in a positive way. Our mission is to create, foster, or support programs designed to make New York City a safer and better place to live and work. With the support of individuals and businesses in the NYC media industry, more than $5 million has been raised to date for that purpose. We collaborate with many community and social groups including Citizens Committee for New York City, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, New York Cares, New York Police Foundation, Police Athletic League, Safe Horizons, the Child Abuse Prevention Project, and more.

the anonymity of callers and maintains the reward fund. The Reisenbach Foundation
has played a major role in keeping our city safe.”
