We Strengthen Organizations that Help Young People THRIVE

Why We Exist / Our Mission / Our Approach

70% of youth-development organizations have inadequate resources, and less than 50% feel they can meet the needs of the youth they serve.

Why We Exist / Our Mission / Our Approach

Our mission is to transform the lives of New York City youth by empowering the nonprofits that serve them.

From improving fundraising practices and building boards to funding crucial infrastructure elements, we help our nonprofit partners implement best practices from the corporate and nonprofit sectors so that they can achieve sustainable growth.
