Public Private Partnerships

The Office of Public-Private Partnerships

The ACS Office of Public-Private Partnerships works to secure private and public resources to support and strengthen ACS programs benefiting children and families citywide. We work closely with the philanthropic community and partners in the corporate, government and nonprofit sectors, helping to create and build meaningful collaborations to improve the lives of New York City families.

The Partnerships Office is also the primary link for in-kind donations to ACS, generating close to $5 million annually from generous New Yorkers and the business community. We distribute tickets for sporting and cultural events, generously provided by our in-kind partners, to help support ACS-involved children and families during one of the most challenging moments in their lives. Discover a current list of our in-kind partners here (link to separate webpage that lists our in-kind donors).

We eagerly welcome interest from new partners. Please email us to get in touch.

  • Nicole Carta - Executive Director
  • Ebony Dunn - Director of Partnerships
  • Sonia Galarza - Director of In-Kind and Pro Bono Resources
  • Tyone Hutchinson - Associate Director
