Today marks the start of Summer 2018!
It’s been a full and exciting year so far for the John A. Reisenbach (JAR) Foundation, and we have so much more in store…
Throughout this summer, we will be highlighting the incredible work of our grant partners, donors, John Jay scholars, Board members, and more, by way of the Summer in a Safe City campaign.
Summer in a Safe City is an opportunity for us to showcase the people and organizations that make our work meaningful! Follow us each week on our blog here, as well as on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn!
Our goal is to raise $10,000 this summer to keep New Yorkers safe.
It is easy to give, and a small donation goes a very long way. For example:
- $10 provides supplies for a girl starting a small business in the Handmade Program of Foster Pride
- $50 provides education on physical and sexual abuse to an average of four children via workshops at the Child Abuse Prevention Program of New York Foundling
- $250 provides two days of outreach services for homeless youth at the Safe Horizon Harlem Streetwork Center
Make your fully tax-deductible contribution of any amount here.
Thank you from all of our grantee partners that your gift will help support!
