Cheer for Life is a fund and fundraising method in which Cheer New York collects donations to help other organizations. In particular, money is raised for adults and/or children’s charities addressing HIV, cancer, MS and other life-challenging conditions to help these valuable organizations thrive and continue to offer their services to the greater NY-NJ community.
Every year, the team selects one or two charities to be the recipients of our Cheer for Life Fund. A large portion of all donations made to Cheer New York is then sent to those charities; the remainder is used to offset Cheer New York daily operating costs so that we can continue to do the good work we do. That is why we consider ourselves “Cheerleaders for Charity!”
Cheer New York is proud to support Immigration Equality as the 2018 Cheer for Life Fund recipient. Their work advocating for and providing free legal services to LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrants and families seeking refuge, fair treatment and freedom is especially important in this changing world.
