About Us

The New York Foundation is a steadfast supporter of community organizing and advocacy.Ā  Our grants support community-initiated solutions to solve local problems, constituents mobilizing for adequate and equitable resources, and groups organizing a collective voice among those whose voices have not been heard.

We believe that the resilience and vitality of New York City’s neighborhoods are its greatest resource, we support work that inspires residents to become more informed, active participants in the life of the city.
