“We wanted to apply investment principles to charitable giving. We're socially responsible venture capitalists.”
— David Saltzman
David Saltzman helped start Robin Hood as one of its five founding board members in 1988. He became its first full-time employee in 1989 and has served as its Executive Director ever since. Under David’s leadership, Robin Hood has grown from an all volunteer start-up organization into an institution that has raised $2 billion to fight poverty in New York City. In 2014 alone, Robin Hood made grants of more than $130 million to meet the growing needs of the 1.8 million New Yorkers living in poverty.
