Summer in a Safe City is an informational and fundraising campaign. Every year The Reisenbach Foundation highlights the hard work done by our grantees throughout the city.
Furthermore, we share special words from our Board Members, Trailblazers, supporters and staff about why keeping New York City safe is especially important in the summertime.
This year, our goal is to raise $5,000. Each donation will be matched one- for- one, and every donation will go towards Reisenbach grant making.
Every dollar counts and goes a long way for our grantees. Click here to give to Summer in a Safe City!
If you are unable to give, but have time to spare this Summer, tuned for updates on volunteering around the city. Help us New York City better and safer for everyone!
