With your support, kids across New York City have access to the people, places, and things that inspire successful futures. Thank you for joining Change for Kids in our mission to reimagine possibilities.

Did you know that Change for Kids began as a grassroots movement collecting “change” for classrooms in need? We’ve grown a lot since then, but we still rely on the critical support of our community to bring our programs to life.

There are so many ways you can help create opportunities for kids so they have a fair chance to succeed!

If you would like any assistance please email or call (212) 213-8061 and we are happy to assist!
