We Put Leaders First

Since our founding in 1968, our goal has been to improve the lives of everyday people. We started in local communities throughout New York City and have since expanded across the nation. We are now sharing our knowledge with communities across the globe.

Word From Our Partner Projects

"The Fund has been instrumental in getting our Project to where it is today. Allowing us to focus on fundraising and building the program. The Fund is a Godsend to nonprofit management.”

Ted Kamoutsis, Executive Director, Promise Project

“The Fund has kept us afloat in terms of our work in the last five years, we wouldn't be able to serve if it wasn't for the Fund for the City of New York. The Fund taking care of all the back office stuff is critical because it allows the organization and my staff to focus on the mission at hand.”

Anju Rupchandani, Executive Director, Zone 126

“All of the core financial and HR services are extremely important to Rise. We would be much more nervous if we had to oversee all of these domains of nonprofit work ourselves.”

Nora McCarthy, Director of Family Policy Project, Former Executive Director of Rise

“The Fund has provided clear and consistent support for our organization, serving as our fiscal agent. As a small, not-for-profit, we benefit from the Fund's financial expertise and can represent to donors and supporters that we are a well managed, and fiscally responsible organization.”

Dr. Sharon Dunn, Trustee & Former President, School Art League

Working with the Fund has been an extremely beneficial experience. Not only do they provide the back office support that allows us to focus on our substantive efforts but they are truly a partner for us and always responsive and flexible with our needs!

Fred DeJohn, Executive Director of The GovLab and Innovate NJ

Sloan Public Service Awards

For nearly 50 years, the “Nobel Prize of public service” has been awarded to outstanding civil servants whose work performance and commitment to the public transcend–not merely the ordinary–but the extraordinary. In honoring these winners, we also acknowledge the contribution and sacrifice of the hundreds of thousands of dedicated public servants who, with integrity and devotion, perform the work that keeps NYC running.

Sloan Awards for Excellence in Teaching Science & Mathematics

Annually, in collaboration with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Fund for the City of New York selects seven exceptional teachers.  2022’s awards are particularly special, as they both honored the awarded teachers and symbolized our collective appreciation for educators across New York City during the COVID-19 pandemic. 2022’s honorees join a distinguished group of 77 past winners.
