Supporting the most effective poverty-fighting programs in the city.

WE INVEST IN THE BEST

Using our rigorous, metrics-driven grant-making philosophy, we find, fund, and partner with the most effective poverty-fighting programs in New York City. These programs are often the first of their kind and serve as demonstration models to identify what works before being replicated in other cities. When programs succeed, we help bring them to scale; if they stumble, we help them improve. But if weak performance persists, we end support. Every misspent dollar is a missed opportunity to help someone in need.

Impact

Last year, we allocated over $116 million for 372 grants and engagements with our community partners.

SPECIAL INITIATIVES

There is no silver bullet to ending poverty. But there are ways of attacking poverty at its roots. More than treating the symptoms, we identify the causes of poverty and its long-term effects, then we invest in programs that offer both near- and long-term solutions.

APPLY FOR A GRANT

We invest entirely in poverty-fighting organizations that are direct service providers operating in the five boroughs of New York City. Learn more about how to apply for a grant.
