NYS HIMSS Chapter makes donation to support COVID-19 response through New York Community Trust Emergency Fund

In an effort to help our Healthcare community facing the COVID-19 pandemic, the NYS HIMSS Chapter made a $10,000 donation to the New York Community Trust Emergency Fund (info listed below) on Friday, April 3rd, 2020. The Board felt this fund could address those areas of need best, whether it be N95 masks, respirators, food or shelter. We sincerely hope you feel this was a worthy expression of our willingness to help where it is needed most.

As we move forward, the NYS Chapter will look to provide other means of assisting our communities until this epidemic becomes a thing of the past. We wish all of you the best as you continue to be our frontline in this epic battle. Our thoughts and prayers go with you;

Sincerely,

HIMSS NYS Chapter, Board of Directors 

 

 The New York Community Trust Emergency Fund

This fund will help New Yorkers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic by supporting a wide array of nonprofits providing critical services on the ground now and in the future. Your donation to this fund will help our city’s most vulnerable, including people whose jobs have disappeared, and are threatened by losing access to food, shelter, health care. The Fund will also be able to pivot and support nonprofits addressing unforeseen needs in the future as the pandemic continues to overturn people’s lives. The Trust’s own professional grantmaking staff will oversee financial support to vital organizations that provide health care, housing, food, job training, and other support to those in need.
