The Mayor's Fund to Advance NYC is raising funds to support its Fallen Heroes Relief Effort to support the NYPD and the family of fallen Sergeant Paul Tuozzolo, who was tragically killed on Friday November 4th.


The New York City Soccer Initiative is a first-of-its kind public-private partnership that will build, maintain and program 50 mini soccer fields in underserved neighborhoods across the five borough over the next five years. In addition to constructing 50 new fields across the city, the program will support 10,000 young New Yorkers through after-school soccer and mentoring programs.

ThriveNYC Media Campaign will ensure more New Yorkers know accessible mental health treatment is available and that there is no shame in seeking help. Support our efforts to expand this campaign and raise awareness of the prevalence of mental health issues, so that no New Yorker has to struggle in silence any longer.

Connections to Care is advancing New York City's vision of transforming the delivery of mental health care services. As the largest public-private partnership in ThriveNYC, Connections to Care has selected 15 community-based organizations already serving low-income communities all across our city to train their staff to integrate mental health services into existing programs.

The Urban Fellows Program is a nine-month fellowship which combines work in Mayoral offices and City agencies with engagement opportunities that explore current urban issues impacting public policy. Through their work with decision makers in municipal government, Urban Fellows develop their skill sets and gain work experience in the public sector in addition to being exposed to the development and implementation of public policies in the continually changing urban landscape.

Family Justice Centers run by The Mayor's Office to Combat Domestic Violence (OCDV), provide comprehensive civil and legal services, as well as support and counseling for victims of domestic violence, elder abuse, and sex trafficking. Support for these Centers aids the work of OCDV as they partner with other City agencies and community-based and advocacy and service organizations to expand access to essential resources for victims of domestic violence and their children.

Civic Innovation supports the priority needs of the Mayor’s Fund. This includes general support of operations, specific project work, as well as helping advance key City initiatives including youth workforce readiness, mental health services, immigrant communities, and disaster relief.
