On this site, you’ll find stories of how Giants of Generosity, Inc., a registered 501(c)3 charitable organization, has had a profound impact on the lives of individuals and families, here in our own communities, who are experiencing the worst crises of their lives. You’ll see it in photos and read it in heartfelt testimonials from the people we have helped.

Those we serve are often low-income and critically ill, and when all other resources have failed (including government services) Giants of Generosity steps in and provides what is vitally needed and accomplishes what others could not. As an example, in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy we were on site in Rockaway, NY offering assistance to muck out and gut damaged homes before the Red Cross had arrived.

Over the years we have:

  • Procured life-sustaining medical equipment.
  • Paid rents and mortgages to ward off foreclosures and evictions.
  • Paid insurance premiums for accident victims.
  • Retrofitted homes for people with disabilities.

I have learned through firsthand experience that life is fragile, and sudden catastrophes can easily cause great pain and upheaval. Hardship does not discriminate or wait for a more convenient time. This is where Giants of Generosity comes in; we understand that help cannot be delayed.

We believe that everyone deserves the right to live a dignified, healthy and productive life. We offer a personal healing touch and fast-acting assistance to those who are struggling to rebuild their lives. We comfort them with the knowledge that they are not alone. And for that, there is no substitute. It’s what makes the giving human.

As we enter our tenth year, we are keenly aware of the magnitude of the life-threatening needs that surround us. Contributions from donors like you, will, in fact, transform many lives. We can assure you, with great pride, that at least 85% of your donation will go directly to help our neighbors who are experiencing these life-altering situations.

Much work is still to be done and we need your help. A gift of any amount would be greatly appreciated. Please join us in our mission, as we continue to do this critically important work.
