CAmpaign To Sustain
Donate to JAR’s Campaign to Sustain
In light of the recent outbreak of the novel Coronavirus in NYC -- and its economic and public safety ramifications -- we are launching a Campaign to Sustain to ensure the sustainability and viability of the Foundation and its grant partners. At a time when our City is experiencing its own fragility, we are called upon to protect our most at-risk populations from the inevitable hardships that will arise out of this economic downturn.
To raise $100,000 by May 31st, every dollar of which will be allocated towards the needs of our grant partners.
Why is JAR’s support critical to its grant partners at this urgent time?
We support 20 local nonprofits which provide services to our city's most vulnerable, including: families living in poverty, single-family households, homeless families and youth, previously incarcerated, adults living with developmental disabilities, and court involved youth. The individuals and families that we help support already struggle with daily challenges - now, resources are drastically more scarce, household providers are losing jobs at exponential rates, children are not in school and/or do not have the materials to continue school from home, and the fear of uncertainty is overwhelming. Our nonprofit partners are counting on JAR to make sure their clients are still being serviced despite the public health and financial emergency.

This is not the first time New Yorkers have been compelled to come together in the face of a crisis, and we have proven ourselves to be formidable as a city-wide community. Please join us in rolling up our sleeves in service of one another, which is needed now, more than ever.
