2015 Annual Report


Dear Friends,

I am thrilled to present this year’s Annual Report. These pages highlight the incredible growth and impact you have helped us create at our amazing New York City partner schools.

We started this year by joining forces with two new principals—Principal Tiffany Hicks at P.S. 160 in Queens, and Principal Lila Jorge at P.S. 277 in the Bronx. We also continued to develop our relationships with our current schools, bringing on new program partners such as Bubble Foundation, a nutrition education program, and Chess NYC.

In all, we provided over 79,000 hours of programming to our schools, and more than 5,000 hours of volunteer support. Our annual revenue grew 40% from $825,000 to nearly $1,200,000, which has enabled us to partner with three new schools this fall.

Since I joined Change for Kids as the Executive Director in 2009, I have had the rare experience of celebrating every year as the organization’s best year yet. 2014-2015 is yet another “best year yet,” and I hope you enjoy reflecting on the progress you have helped create as much as our team has enjoyed assembling this report.

Many thanks for your support of CFK.
