Designate Your Gift
In addition to a general agency donation, you can choose to designate your donation into two funds:
Newtown Cares Fund – Newtown Cares was established by our Board of Directors in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary school tragedy. These donations are used for Financial Aid for NYFS’ behavioral health clients, as well as implementation of support services for individuals and families in the community who have been impacted by the Sandy Hook Elementary school tragedy. In addition, donations to Newtown Cares also support NYFS’ extensive positive youth development programming.
Caroline’s Gift – A fund established in the late ’90s by a Newtown Family in memory of their daughter, Caroline. This fund, administered by NYFS, offers financial support to families who are dealing with a child’s terminal or catastrophic illness. Requests are processed by the Agency and forwarded to the family who make the determinatinon, regarding a financial award. Recipients may remain anonymous.
