JFKIAT, the operator of Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport, today announced that, along with a number of its partners, it has raised $230K to aid the Queens community as it continues to grapple with the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Through its corporate giving program, 4GOOD, JFKIAT and its partners created a fund that awards resources to several community organizations that have continued to support Queens residents and businesses for the past year.
The fund will provide one-time donations to several local organizations that provide community support, local business support, and education, which are among the key pillars of its 4GOOD program. The organizations were selected through an application process, in which they specified programs and initiatives geared to helping those most impacted by the pandemic. The donations will be made and announced in the coming weeks.
“Since the beginning of the pandemic, many in the aviation industry and in the Queens community have suffered from severe economic impacts of the crisis,” said Roel Huinink, President & CEO of JFKIAT. “As a Queens-based company, we have always taken action to support our community through our partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and through our 4GOOD program. At this time when so many in our borough are in need of support we want to make a meaningful impact to lend help for those within the JFK community and our neighbors in the Greater Jamaica area. We look forward to working with the organizations to distribute funds in the coming weeks.”
JFKIAT’s partners in this effort include Academy Securities, Chapman and Cutler, LLP, Law Offices of Joseph C. Reid, Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC., KPMG LLC, Landrum & Brown, Omnicap, Ramirez & Co., Inc, Rice Financial, and Squire Patton Boggs.
JFKIAT’s corporate giving program, 4GOOD, seeks to serve local institutions through philanthropic and sustainable actions to make a positive impact on the community.
