Cause & Impact

Meeting pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

In 2013, we completed 1,640 relief and recovery projects in zones of high need.  

Last year, New York Cares collected and distributed over 100,000 coats to New Yorkers in need.

Last year, over 353 caring New Yorkers tutored 1,072 high school students for the SAT.

Last year, we secured $23 million in tax refunds and credits for low-income New Yorkers.

Partners learned to scale their projects by leveraging the power of volunteers.

Last year, we engaged 2,100 public high school students in service projects all over the city.

Our green-thumbed volunteers spent over 10,860 hours beautifying parks and community gardens.

Last year, more than 19,000 corporate volunteers partnered with New York Cares to help NYC.

Every October, more than 4,000 volunteers paint a brighter future for NYC public schools.
