Founded in 1989, the New York City AIDS Fund (the AIDS Fund) is a group of grantmaking organizations in New York City whose goal is to increase private funding to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic by supporting the improvement, coordination, and targeting of community resources in New York City. Housed at The New York Community Trust, the AIDS Fund is dedicated to helping community groups provide vital programs and implement advocacy efforts that address the local HIV/AIDS epidemic. It also serves as a local community partnership site of AIDS United.
The AIDS Fund is guided by an advisory committee representing grantmaking organizations, public agencies, human service organizations, and people living with AIDS. Each year, the advisory committee reviews previous grants, completes an assessment to evaluate the current status of the local AIDS epidemic, and helps analyze the availability of government funding in order to determine where private funding is most needed and can have the greatest effect.
2012 funding priorities include: (1) Primary HIV Prevention Programs; (2) Improving the capacity of service programs to identify, test, and treat HIV-positive individuals;and (3) Public policy and advocacy.
