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

Make a Difference in the Communities Your Corporation Serves

Make a difference in the neighborhoods, communities, and city where your employees and clients live and work. With 25 years of experience, New York Cares’ Corporate Relations team works hand-in-hand with each of our corporate sponsors to create and grow comprehensive and highly successful employee engagement programs. Explore the many volunteer opportunities we offer.

The time and resources that companies offer are critical to meeting the pressing needs of our community. But corporate volunteering isn’t just a one-way street. Studies have shown that volunteering has measurable value beyond the satisfaction of making a difference. Check out a few of the business benefits that corporate service can provide.

Work with New York Cares’ staff to develop, plan and implement a service program tailored to the needs and priorities of your company. Volunteer opportunities can occur once or multiple times; can be small- or large- scale; and can target any of our core program areas, including children’s education and recreation, adult career preparation and community revitalization.

Spend the day making a difference in your city by forming a team of your colleagues and volunteering alongside thousands of other corporate, civic and youth participants at one of our large-scale, annual service events, including New York Cares Day Spring and New York Cares Day Fall.

Brighten the lives of children in need by purchasing gifts or reading some of the thousands of holiday requests submitted as part of our annual Winter Wishes program. You can also give the gift of warmth to cold New Yorkers by collecting or sorting coats during our seasonal Coat Drive.

Empower your employees to volunteer on their own time at one of New York Cares’ 1,600 monthly projects by hosting orientations at your office.
