Donating Cash for COVID-19 Relief

Mayor Bill de Blasio has tasked the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City with activating the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund to provide resources and support to health care workers, local small businesses, displaced hourly workers, families, youth, and vulnerable New Yorkers affected by COVID-19. To donate, visit the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City website.

Cash is Best

Making a financial contribution to a volunteer agency involved in disaster relief is the best way of helping people in need after a disaster.

If you would like to donate cash to a responding organization, please visit NYC Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NYCVOAD) or visit the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City to identify an active effort.

Coordinate *Before* You Donate

Never drop off in-kind (stuff) donations without coordinating your donation with a recipient agency first; only donate in-kind donations if solicited. For more information about how to donate, visit donateNYC.
