Corporate Gift Matching:


Many companies have programs through which they will "match" the charitable contributions made by their employees. Through corporate gift matching, your employer can multiply your gift to the Empire State Relief Fund, making it go further.

Check with your company's Human Resources office to see if they offer gift matching. (If they don't, you may want to ask your company to start one.) If your employer does offer this program, your Human Resources department should provide you with a matching gift form to send to the Empire State Relief Fund along with your donation. Complete this form and mail it with your donation to:

Empire State Relief Fund
c/o Richard Sirota, Treasurer
53 North Park Avenue, Suite 302

Our Mission: To provide funding, materials and services to help New Yorkers who are faced with rebuilding and restoring return to their homes and recover from the storm.

The Empire State Relief Fund is dedicated to providing resources to help recover from Hurricane Sandy and rebuild and restore homes.  The challenges that New Yorkers face as a result of Hurricane Sandy are unlike any we have ever seen before.  Thousands of New Yorkers saw their homes destroyed or irreparably damaged by Hurricane Sandy.  Many more will face extensive, expensive repairs to make their homes habitable again.  Some New Yorkers will receive a measure of assistance from private insurance, FEMA, and other government funding sources.  However, in many cases, New Yorkers will face a substantial gap between the cost of repair or replacement of their home and the funds available to them to cover this cost.  The Empire State Relief Fund will focus on long-term residential housing assistance to help fill the funding gap and ensure that New Yorkers can continue to call New York home.
