September's Mission is to support the development of a memorial park on the former World Trade Center site that ties into the overall redevelopment of Lower Manhattan, and to ensure its future sustainability through public/private partnerships.

September's Mission is committed to working with the families, Manhattan residents, businesses and public officials to ensure that the future of the World Trade Center site not only honors the lives that were lost on September 11, but serves all New Yorkers for generations to come.

Once the scope of the World Trade Center memorial is more clearly defined, September's Mission aims to work with public entities as the private arm to fund memorial development efforts as well as on-going operations and educational endeavors.

September's Mission is also dedicated to helping families who lost loved ones on 9/11. By hosting and supporting events throughout the year for families and children, we strengthen personal connections and create a positive, nurturing forum that contributes to healing.
