The pandemic was a catalyst for us to radically change our grantmaking process. It was an opportunity to do something totally different from what we had ever done before and accelerate our Trust-Based Philanthropy journey.
Twitter and Square co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey has donated $750,000 to Youth INC’s COVID-19 Response & Recovery Fund through his philanthropic initiative #StartSmall, bringing the Fund to over $2 million raised to date.
Youth INC distributes $1 million in grants to its nonprofit partners. We are committed to standing alongside our nonprofit partners and pushing through the longstanding barriers highlighted by the pandemic that prevent NYC youth from thriving.
