Shared Values — a cause and an action.
Mission: To transform the lives of NYC kids through our unique venture philanthropy model that empowers the nonprofits that serve them. Since our founding as a 501c3 in 1995, we've taken a uniquely holistic approach to address the many different needs of nonprofits, from improving fundraising practices and building boards, to funding critical elements of infrastructure. By applying the best practices from the corporate and nonprofit sectors, we empower our partner nonprofits with the tools to achieve sustainable growth. We currently partner with more than sixty youth-serving nonprofits that work with over 300,000 kids each year.
About: Youth INC transforms the lives of NYC youth by empowering the organizations that serve them. We are a network of 60+ youth-serving organizations reaching 300,000 underserved youth each year. We develop robust fundraising capabilities and establish metrics with our partners to improve their programs and demonstrate their impact.
After working with Youth INC, our partners are able to increase the amount of youth served by over 160%.
