We fight poverty in NYC

Since 1988 Robin Hood has focused on finding, funding, and creating programs and schools that generate meaningful results for families in New York's poorest neighborhoods. Over its 25 year history, Robin Hood has distributed more than $2.5 billion to hundreds of New York City-based soup kitchens, homeless shelters, schools, job training programs, and other vital services that give New York's neediest citizens the tools they need to build better lives for themselves and their families. In addition, Robin Hood's board of directors pays all administrative, fundraising and evaluation costs, so 100% of your donation goes directly to organizations helping New Yorkers in need.

Robin Hood:  End poverty.  Start here in NYC.

About poverty in NYC.

1.8 million of our neighbors are living in poverty in New York City.

1.4 million New Yorkers rely on emergency food to survive.

20,000 children in NYC sleep in a homeless shelter every night.


How we’re fighting poverty in NYC.

Robin Hood is the largest independent poverty-fighter in NYC and one of the most innovative.

We've taken a new approach to defeat an age-old problem. Our method of using market principles to foster the most effective social change has been called “venture philanthropy.” We’ll accept the name, but what we won’t accept is the status quo. There are presently 1.8 million New Yorkers living in poverty. We are determined to upset that status quo.

In 2014, we were fortunate enough to be able to touch the lives of hundreds of thousands of  New Yorkers...which is pretty amazing. But unfortunately, there were over one million of our neighbors in need who we weren’t able to help.


Please help us help our neighbors in need.

$1.20 provides a meal for a hungry New Yorkers

$50 gives a low-income worker free tax preparation—and an average return of $2,000.

$75 provides shelter for one night for one person.
