The New York Times 9/11 Neediest Fund

The New York Times 9/11 Neediest Fund is a one-month campaign established to collect contributions to relieve the suffering of families struck by death or injury in the World Trade Center calamity, both civilians and rescue workers.

The campaign is being managed by The New York Times Co. Neediest Cases Fund, which will, as with the annual Neediest Cases campaign, cover all administrative costs.

Contributions will be accepted through October 11 and then be allocated to the seven social service agencies which disburse funds in the annual Neediest Cases campaign, plus three foundations representing the uniform services. These are the Fire Safety Foundation, the Police Foundation, and the John Jay College of Criminal Justice Foundation, on behalf of Port Authority, Sanitation, and other agencies.

    Very helpful info! Thx, Syre. Other helpful websites for donating blood/money:

    1. The system the NY Times is using, charitywave, is rather unreliable, and seems to put your money in a 'charitywave account' rather than actually giving it to the charity.

      It may be necessary to go back and verify that it really did put the money in (perhaps by donating an extra $5 using your username and password that they make you set up), to see if you have a 'remaining balance'. If so, donate the remaining balance so it gets credited properly.

      I have brought this to their attention, and hopefully they will fix it.

      1. KTVU (channel 2)'s web site has a good list of local and national charities, benefits, and volunteer work for the Bay Area.
