The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization designed to promote partnerships between the City and the private sector to support public programs. Established in 1994 (formerly Public-Private Initiatives), the organization serves as an important vehicle for foundations, corporations and individuals to contribute to City programs that enhance the lives of New Yorkers.
The Mayor’s Fund is committed to facilitating innovative public-private partnerships that support NYC's emerging needs, while simultaneously evaluating the efficacy and merit of programs for future funding. Currently, the Fund partners with 45 City Agencies and Offices to support over 100 different programs in areas including the environment, youth development, health, financial empowerment, volunteerism, and the arts. Several of these collaborations are informing the efforts of cities across the country and are helping to shape national policy.
