Fund for the City of New York
The HIV/AIDS epidemic, which first emerged in the U.S. in the 1980s, hit New York City especially hard. From 1986-1989, the RBF made grants to the Fund for the City of New York to support its work cultivating and coordinating private sector leadership in response to the crisis. It also made grants to the Fund’s orphans program, which connected children whose parents had died of AIDS to a network of social services.
