United Way of New York City engages more than 700 nonprofits throughout the five boroughs each year—from large citywide agencies to small, community-based groups—to execute our programs and initiatives.
We design and deploy a variety of evidence-based discretionary programs that move New Yorkers along the path out of poverty and toward self-sufficiency. We do this by improving educational outcomes for children, strengthening the financial stability of households, and promoting healthier lifestyles. Our strategic partners are chosen through a multi-tiered process to help us achieve desired outcomes for each initiative.
UWNYC also administers a variety of government-funded programs. Through these programs, we provide grants to community-based organizations to support intervention services, including emergency shelter, access to benefits, food security, and nutrition assistance.
