New York Cares' Education and Family programs--about 40% of our projects--allow New Yorkers to support their neighbors in learning and succeeding on their own terms by supporting schools and nonprofits that provide resources and opportunities to people of all ages.


If you believe that...

  • Leveling the college admissions playing field is imperative, get excited about our college preparation programs coming this fall!

  • Investing in all New Yorkers regardless of income level or national origin, consider one of our citizenship preparation or job readiness projects.
