The Noya Fields Family group of charitable funds represents two generations and collectively more than 40 years of philanthropic endeavors with a strong commitment of continuing well in to the future.
In The Beginning
The Judith and Norman Fields Fund (JNFF) was established in 1992 as a donor advised fund administered by The New York Community Trust. The fund has supported a wide range of community, educational, and cultural organizations throughout its lifetime: The NY 92nd Street Y, Central Park Conservancy, Dress For Success, Mt. Sinai Hospital NYC, Union Settlement Assoc East Harlem, and Music Mountain in Falls Village Ct to name only a few.
The Next Generation
Nikki Noya-Fields and Ken Fields represent the next generation of family members committed to giving back to their communities. They are currently executors for the JNFF NY Community Trust, they also maintain their own fund with The California Community Foundation.
How We Work
Both funds provide direct grants to appropriately vetted organizations, but we also believe in building partnerships and sharing our collective time, energy and commitment to produce tangible and sustainable results. We see philanthropy as an organic enterprise that needs to be nurtured – volunteering expertise, experience, advice and simply being available can be a priceless value added.
