You Can Help With Charitable Contributions
Many residents and families have expressed a desire to help strengthen our community with a contribution. We are a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, which means that donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Here are several ways to donate, and we hope you’ll consider one. Or two! You can donate online here!
COVID-19 Relief Fund –
The Relief Fund will help offset the increased cost of labor and supplies necessary to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. We have enlisted the help of extra staffing in our Dietary and Security Department as well as upgraded our entrance with new video monitors in an effort to better serve our community according to new recommendations. Our operations are fully funded by our monthly rentals. Additionally, as a not-for-profit organization we rely on the generosity of others such as donations of additional supplies and masks and we greatly appreciate the generosity thus far.
COVID-19 Heroes Fund –The Hero Fund is specifically designed to provide financial support to those critical workers at the frontline of the COVID-19 crisis. Cleaning service workers, food service workers, laundry workers and security workers, amongst others are being asked to come forward to serve the Flushing House community.
Our Heroes are in need of financial support for childcare, transportation, and other essential services in order for them to continue to work during this pandemic. Any donations will directly benefit these brave employees as a sign of gratitude for their selflessness, dedication and commitment to our mission to serve older adults.
Employee Holiday Fund – Our residents often speak of their very positive experiences here, especially our helpful and caring staff. Many express a desire to do something in return. Since employees cannot accept individual gifts from residents, we have an annual holiday gift drive and donations are divided equally amongst the staff.
Annual Gala Fundraising Event – Each year we hold our annual fundraiser. If you’d like to attend or support this event, please let us know and you’ll be placed on our mailing list.
George Nussbaum Fund – How does the fund work? As a not-for-profit, we never ask a resident to leave our community, when they are no longer able to pay for housing. To support this mission, the fund was established as a special endowment to subsidize residents who have fallen on hard financial times. We receive no government funds for this effort. Only your gift, and support from others, makes it possible for us to fulfill our mission of caring and compassion for older adults. You can strengthen our vision of a better life for older adults, by making a gift to Flushing House, and designating it for the George Nussbaum Fund. New Horizons Fund
– Many of our residents support Flushing House by pledging their security deposits to the New Horizons Fund. This is earmarked for vital services needed to maintain a high quality of life for residents, while keeping rents affordable. It’s like a rainy day fund. You don’t even have to write a check, just make a pledge!
For residents who are no longer with us, their families can support the New Horizons Fund in their name. By sending a check equal to your loved one’s security deposit, payable to New Horizons Fund, you’ll help build our new endowment.
Please be advised that your support is tax-deductible. We are a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt, not-for-profit, registered as a charity with New York State. If you would like to contribute, or need additional information, please contact Nancy Rojas, Vice President at (347) 532-3026 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
