TARGETING POVERTY IN NEW YORK CITY

At Robin Hood, our board pays our administrative and fundraising expenses so 100% of your donation goes directly to fighting poverty.
We make grant decisions to maximize impact, much like a financial manager chooses investments to maximize profit. The upshot: a 15:1 return on your investment dollar.

 

LAST YEAR, ROBIN HOOD INVESTED $132 MILLION IN MORE THAN

210 OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE POVERTY-FIGHTING PROGRAMS IN NEW YORK CITY.

 

 



YOUR SUPPORT TRANSFORMS LIVES LIKE THESE.
When it comes to fighting poverty, numbers are important. But what's really at stake are human beings. People who have been born into poverty or who are drowning in the consequences of one mistake. That's why Robin Hood values the stories behind the numbers. Because at the end of the day, these stories are our stories. And we all have something to learn from them.

 

 

New Yorkers have joined our fight against poverty.
