Robin Hood is New York City’s largest poverty-fighting organization. For over thirty years, we’ve been finding, fueling and creating the most impactful and scalable solutions to lift families out of poverty in New York City. We partner with over 250 nonprofits to support food, housing, education, legal services, workforce development, and more to New Yorkers living in poverty across all five boroughs.


Robin Hood will only fund 501(c)(3) organizations providing services in New York City. We cannot fund individuals.

Potential grantees are screened to determine their effectiveness at serving poor New Yorkers. Robin Hood staff conducts site visits and interviews, analyzes outcomes and financial data, and checks references to ensure that we’re making a sound investment.
