New York Cares Day for Schools is a fundraiser that culminates in a city-wide day of service that brings together thousands of New Yorkers on a mission of making a difference in education needs and schools in New York City.
How? By transforming the spaces where students learn and educators make an impact, in just 4 hours. The event also serves as an important fundraiser to support New York Cares year-round programming.
This is a landmark year for New York Cares marking our 30th anniversary, as we celebrate more than 230,000 year-round volunteers who have contributed 6 million hours of service since 1987. As one of the organization’s largest fundraisers, donations to Cares Day are essential in laying the groundwork for the next 30 years of service.
