R&D TO TLC
by investing money, time and
know-how to lift and keep
New Yorkers out of poverty.
|WE INVEST IN THE BEST.|
In 2011 alone, Robin Hood granted more than $146 million to fight poverty in New York City. From the thousands of groups out there, we have identified and funded just over 200 of the most effective organizations on the front lines of the battle against poverty.
Apples to oranges...to plums.
Finding and selecting the most effective organizations to fund is a challenging task. How do you choose between programs that offers job training to the unemployed, to programs that focus on children's health, to programs that help the homeless?
To compare apples to oranges to plums, Robin Hood has developed a disciplined system for comparing the impacts of dissimilar programs by measuring them on this same scale: how much the program is going to increase future earning and income. Watch how we utilize metrics to select the top programs in New York City.
