Robin Hood holds steadfast to a single mission: fight poverty in New York City. We find, fund and create programs and schools that generate measurable results for families in New York’s poorest neighborhoods. We work closely with the 200 organizations we support to help them reach capacity and maximize outcomes. In 2009, Robin Hood invested $136 million in 200 programs and schools, touching approximately 430,000 New Yorkers. A rigorous system of metrics and third-party evaluation of these groups guarantee accountability. The board pays all administrative, fundraising and evaluation costs, so 100 percent of donations goes directly to organizations helping New Yorkers in need to build better lives.
Robin Hood made monetary grants for programs to grantee organizations in four areas of poverty fighting: early childhood and youth; education; jobs and economic security; and survival, which is primarily concerned with hunger, homelessness and H.I.V./AIDS.
