Your Generosity Makes a Difference for New Yorkers in Need, Right Now. 

It will take the generosity of all of us to confront what's coming in the weeks and months ahead. 

Please join Instinet in supporting the Hebrew Free Loan Society's (HFLS) Coronavirus Financial Impact Loan Fund  to financially assist lower-income New Yorkers of any faith or belief during this unprecedented time. 

By contributing to the HFLS Coronavirus Loan Fund, you will be helping:

  • HFLS extend loans to help lower income New Yorkers meet basic expenses during this time i.e. pay  for food, cover medical expenses, and keep small businesses going.  
  • HFLS will also suspend all loan re-payments of current HFLS borrowers from now until July, 2020 so that they can ease their stress and focus on finding financial stability during this difficult time.

Please donate today. You can make a real difference when it matters most.

Our thoughts are with all New Yorkers, as we wish for their good health and safety.

*If you are interested in making a donation via wire transfer, security transfer, donor advised fund or foundation please email Rachel Chasky, so we can recognize your  generosity here.

Please share our posts widely on Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter so we can reach those in need. 

Thank you,


The Hebrew Free Loan Society fosters financial stability and opportunity among lower income New Yorkers by providing access to safe and affordable credit in the form of interest-free loans. The Hebrew Free Loan Society has been in existence since 1892.

*Please note, HFLS applies a 3% annual administrative fee to all capital gifts in order to defray the cost of making our loans.
