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

Turn Belief Into Action

Campaign visual, Statement reads "I believe in food justice, that's why I prep & distribute healthy meals. Male volunteer with facemask carrying two blue bags with food.

With the rise of a new generation of volunteers, one that expects organizations to take a stand and publicly express their values, it’s no longer enough to say what New York Cares does. We need to talk about why. Our values and beliefs serve as a personal compass. They drive our actions and often define who we are. So when you see or hear about injustice, it hits home.

Issues impacting New Yorkers are personal to us, our volunteers, our partner organizations, and the communities we serve. With New York Cares, you have an outlet to take action on the issues you care about. You value it and together, we can address it.

Turn belief into action.
