  • Jacob Kotin



In late December of 2016, the Kotin family tragically lost their 15 year old son, Jacob, as a result of his struggle with anxiety and depression. In Jacob's honor, his grandmother, Sandra Kotin, established the Jacob Kotin Teens in Crisis Fund to assist others who are facing similar challenges.

In his memory, the Jacob Kotin Teens in Crisis Fund will distribute grants to mental health providers serving teens ranging from ages 13-19 based in Orange and Sullivan counties. Through these grants, teens in these counties, needing assistance with issues relating to bullying, depression and anxiety who otherwise couldn't afford it, can be helped by healthcare professionals. Assistance will be paid directly to the service provider.

Those interested in applying for this grant must be residents of Orange or Sullivan counties and must demonstrate financial need. Those interested in applying should visit www.cfosny.org and download an application. All grant applications should be completed in full and returned to the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan for review and consideration.

Contributions to the fund may be made to CFOS- Jacob Kotin Teens in Crisis Fund and sent to the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, 30 Scott's Corners Drive, Suite 203, Montgomery, NY 12549. Secure online donations may also be made at cfosny.org. For more information, call the Community Foundation at (845) 769-9393.
