Many members of the Morgenthau family have felt it was their duty to respond to crises and help make the world a better place. This legacy continues through the work of Jenny Morgenthau, daughter of Robert Morgenthau and Executive Director of the Fresh Air Fund. The Fund provides free summer experiences in the country to thousands of disadvantaged New York City children every year.

Whether you have a few hours, or a lifetime to devote, we invite you to learn more about what you can do to help your community, your country, and your world. Here are just some of the causes that need your help.
