New York Cares exists to turn passion into action, leverage resources through partnership, and create long-lasting change across New York City.

We foster dynamic relationships with all stakeholders by committing to our core values: equity, humanity and trust. We see value in each of our stakeholders. Be it our volunteers, donors, staff, or community partners; we know we work best when we work together. When new challenges arise, we look to our network of over 1,000 nonprofits, schools, and government agencies across the 5 boroughs to inform our response. We build trust with our 50,000 annual volunteers who give of their time and skills to meet the current needs.
As we grow our team, we are committed to creating a workforce that reflects the communities we serve. New York Cares is dedicated to fostering a workplace where every employee feels valued, finds a place of belonging, and brings their authentic self to work.
