Trinity Deepens its Commitment with Current Grantee Partners

In our latest announcement, Trinity Church Wall Street has awarded more than $8.3 million in grants to nonprofits in December, which brings the total amount of grants distributed in 2021 to $46 million. This latest round of grants will support organizations that work with the most vulnerable and also reaffirm our commitment to our existing grantee partners— showing that Trinity is in this work for the long haul. 

Included in this latest round of funding is a capital grant to The Fortune Society, a grantee at the nexus of addressing housing and homelessness needs for justice-involved New Yorkers. For over 50 years, Fortune has helped thousands of formerly incarcerated people successfully reenter the community, acting as a one-stop shop for thousands of people returning home from prison or jail with reentry services and housing support. To expand access to supportive emergency, transitional, and permanent housing, this most recent grant will support Fortune's efforts to convert a former hotel into supportive housing.

Another grantee partner getting additional support is Episcopal Relief & Development. The organization works in collaboration with church partners and other local organizations to facilitate healthier, more fulfilling lives in communities that are struggling with hunger, poverty, disaster, and disease. It works both domestically and internationally responding to and rebuilding after disasters. With Trinity's support, the organization will kick off its Haiti Earthquake Recovery Project, working with the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti as it continues to provide aid to communities impacted by the August 2021 earthquake.
