About Robin Hood
Founded in 1988, Robin Hood finds, fuels, and creates the most
impactful and scalable solutions on economic mobility in New York
City. The largest poverty fighting organization in New York City,
Robin Hood partners with top nonprofits in New York City and
invests in legal services, housing, meals, workforce development
training, education programs, and other vital services that give
New Yorkers in need the tools they need to build better lives. The
programs it funds are often the first of their kind and serve as
demonstration models to identify what works before being replicated
in other cities. Because its Board of Directors covers 100% of all
administrative, fundraising, and evaluation costs, every dollar
donated goes directly to organizations helping New Yorkers in
While Robin Hood’s primary focus is on New York, its impact
extends far beyond the borders of the city. Its pioneering,
metrics-based approach has become the gold standard for charities
around the nation as Robin Hood works to understand and evaluate
the impact of its partners to ensure that its philanthropic dollars
are utilized to maximum impact. Robin Hood also supports its
community partners and their leaders with financial and strategic
support and management assistance that allows those organizations
to maximize their impact.
Building on our 30 years of experience, Robin Hood is expanding
our impact with an explicit focus on lifting families sustainably
and measurably out of poverty through supporting the most effective
community partners; influencing public policy; raising our thought
leadership profile; importing and exporting effective ideas and
strategies nationally; and building new collaborations with
strategic partners. As New York City emerges from the worst of the
global pandemic, we are focused on getting families back on their
feet; getting kids back on track; and getting New Yorkers back to
Robin Hood also understands that if we are to support families
living in poverty and find permanent pathways out of poverty and
towards financial independence, we must become an effective partner
with government, especially at the City and State levels. We do
this by leveraging the expertise of those who are closest to the
challenges of poverty, including community members, community-based
organizations, and others with specialized skills and knowledge. We
also aim to collaborate with New York City government to fund
program and policy innovations that hold the promise of expanding
economic opportunity in New York City – providing nimble “risk
capital” for high-potential strategies. In this way, we seek to
leverage our philanthropic investments by finding ways to advance
the highest impact strategies at scale.
Given its long-standing reputation among influencers and support
of over 200 New York City non-profit organizations, Robin Hood has
the unique ability to be a catalyzing force for households
experiencing poverty, bringing distinct constituencies together to
develop and spread the most effective strategies to advance
economic mobility in New York City and beyond.
