(Sandy Hook Promise) – At Sandy Hook Promise we are proud to receive support from a diverse group of major donors – individuals and event donors, community and family foundations, philanthropic advisories, and corporations. It is their partnership that allows us to sustain work during uncertain times such as these. Thanks to their generosity, we remain flexible and ready to support communities around the country in preventing violence and we are honored to highlight some of them in this newsletter.

As for the reason she sees SHP’s work as critical during this pandemic, Adrienne tells us, “With students home from school and all of us socially isolated, Sandy Hook Promise’s Say Something Anonymous Reporting System remains open 24/7 to expertly navigate the increase in life-threatening tips they’re receiving. And they remain unwavering in their mission and vision to change our culture and policies over the long run to save lives. Hirsch & Associates Philanthropic Advisors and many of our clients are proud to partner with Sandy Hook Promise to keep our kids, schools, and communities safe from gun violence.”
