Marcum Foundation Sends Emergency Funding to UNICEF for Earthquake Victims
FEBRUARY 10, 2023 (New York City, NY) – In response to this week’s devastating earthquakes in Syria and Turkey, Marcum Foundation has donated $10,000 in emergency funding to UNICEF’s relief efforts for the thousands of children and families affected. In addition, fundraising campaigns enabling Marcum staff, clients, vendors, and friends of the Firm to give to the relief efforts are also underway, with two dollar-for-dollar matching opportunities.
Marcum Foundation is the charitable giving arm of Marcum LLP, a national accounting and advisory services firm based in New York City.
“Thanks to the generosity of Marcum associates, Marcum Foundation is able to provide emergency support to vulnerable children when a dire need arises. The two matching grants for our earthquake fundraising campaigns will stretch our dollars even further,” said Tracy Weiner, the executive director.
Employee donations are made through Marcum Gives, which includes a 100% match from Marcum LLP. An anonymous donor has pledged an additional 100% match for all contributions — from both staff and non-staff — up to $10,000 for earthquake relief.
UNICEF is providing emergency programming and lifesaving support in Turkey and Syria following the 7.7 and 7.5 magnitude earthquakes that hit in the early morning of February 6 — the most powerful to impact the region in almost 100 years. With critical infrastructure destroyed and many schools and hospitals damaged, UNICEF’s top priority is ensuring a safe space for children, where their basic needs for food, water, and warmth this winter can be met.
“We are immensely grateful to Marcum associates and all of our donors for their incredible generosity,” Ms. Weiner said. “It is so gratifying to be able to triple our impact for UNICEF and the children and families so in need of assistance.”
