THE STORY:

Robin Hood:  End poverty.  Start here in NYC.

What your donation can make possible:

$50 gives a low-income worker free tax preparation – and an average return of $2,200.

$100 connects one low-income family to public benefits, social services and employment counseling.

$250 provides 300 meals to hungry New Yorkers.

$500 provides legal counsel to save a family from eviction.

$1,000 provides two weeks of training for a job that pays 50% more than the minimum wage.

$2,500 sends one student to a high-performing charter school.

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.

55% of the babies born in New York City are born into poverty.

40% of black men in New York City are not working.

 

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.

 

Last year Robin Hood…

-Provided 5 million meals to hungry New Yorkers

-Helped educate 45,000 students

-Helped heal over 35,000 low-income patients

-Provided guidance and support for over 8,700 families

 

In 2010, we were fortunate enough to be able to touch the lives of over 650,000 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.
