Fall Fête 2022 was a Wonderful Celebration!

Fall Fete

This year’s Fall Fête was a wonderful evening!

Foundling staff, friends, and supporters gathered at the Plaza Hotel to celebrate the transformative impact of The Foundling’s work. Our evening’s programming, hosted by NY1’s Cheryl Wills, honored Signature Construction for their partnership, and recognized the 25th anniversary of Vincent J. Fontana Center for Child Protection and its leader, Dr. Mel Schneiderman, for 45 years of service to The Foundling.

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we were able to raise over $800,000 to support the 30,000 children, adults, and families we serve across New York City and Puerto Rico as they build pathways toward stability and independence.

Two Foundling videos were premiered at this year’s Fall Fête to showcase Vital Brookdale, our newest supportive housing complex, and to commemorate the 25th anniversary of our Fontana Center. Watch them here:
