Support Our Work

Relief and Recovery Fund

To protect the health of our supporters, advocacy partners, and staff, AFC has canceled our Spring Benefit, but we still need your support so we can fight for New York’s families now and in the difficult year ahead. That is why our annual Fund-a-Need initiative, typically introduced at our Spring Benefit, will be a Relief and Recovery Fund this year.

A message from Kim Sweet, Executive Director of Advocates for Children of New York

The current pandemic is wreaking havoc on the City’s education system, exacerbating pre-existing inequities for the students and families AFC serves. Our clients are struggling with the daunting challenges of remote learning, and once they return to school, they will need additional support to make up for lost instruction as well as the emotional toll that this public health crisis will take on so many low-income New Yorkers.

The Relief and Recovery Fund will ensure that marginalized students and families have AFC in their corner, advocating for the resources they need to overcome the losses and get on track for a brighter future.

We ask those of you who are able to please help us to help New York’s at-risk families recover from the challenges of remote learning due to coronavirus isolation by making a tax-deductible donation today.
