Sunset Park 44th Street Fire Community Fund

$134,665 of $125,000 goal

Raised by 1,720 people in 3 months
Created April 4, 2019
On April 3rd, 2019, the Sunset Park Brooklyn community experienced a devastating 6-alarm fire that displaced more than 50 families including young children and elderly neighbors. 

Many homes have been completely destroyed and the building is likely uninhabitable for the foreseeable future.

In the typical Sunset Park spirit of community and generosity that so many people have experienced in our beloved neighborhood, we are coming together to raise funds for our neighbors so they can rebuild and focus on the wellbeing of themselves and their families. 

100% of all net funds raised will be evenly distributed among the surviving households.

Please donate here and look for upcoming local events that will help our community and impacted families begin to heal.

Note: The "host" of this campaign is the Sunset Park Business Improvement District, a 20+ year old, non-profit community service organization. We will work with local leaders, elected officials, impacted households and faith organizations to ensure all funds raised are fairly allocated  to those in need. Your donation is fully tax-deductible to the extent of the law. Tax ID #: 11-3251860. 


El 3 de abril de 2019, la comunidad de Sunset Park Brooklyn experimentó un devastador incendio de 6 alarmas que desplazó de sus hogares a más de 50 familias, incluidos niños pequeños y ancianos.

Muchas casas han sido completamente destruidas y es probable que el edificio no sea habitable en un futuro inmediato.

En el espíritu típico comunitario y de generosidad que tantas personas han experimentado en nuestro querido vecindario de Sunset Park, nos hemos reunido para recaudar fondos para nuestros vecinos para que se puedan recuperar y enfocarse en el bienestar de ellos mismos y sus familias.

El 100% de todos los fondos netos recaudados se distribuirán uniformemente entre los hogares sobrevivientes.

Done aquí y busque los próximos eventos locales que ayudarán a nuestra comunidad y a las familias afectadas a empezar su recuperación.

Nota: El "anfitrión" de esta campaña es el Distrito de Mejoras Comerciales de Sunset Park, una organización de servicios comunitarios sin fines de lucro de más de 20 años. Trabajaremos con líderes locales, funcionarios electos, hogares afectados y organizaciones religiosas para asegurarnos de que todos los fondos recaudados se asignen de manera justa a los necesitados. Su donación es totalmente deducible de impuestos en la medida de la ley.
