The Mayor’s Fund has established the Fallen Heroes Relief Effort to support our New York City Police officers and the greater law enforcement community and to aid the family of fallen Officer Miosotis Familia, who was tragically killed in the line of duty on Wednesday, July 5th.

Support Girl Scout Troop 6000 and support the thousands of girls living in New York City Shelter System toward reaching their full potential.

NYC Center for Youth Employment (CYE) is focused on facilitating a bigger and better network of youth employment services through partnerships with City agencies, employers and other stakeholders. With the goal of creating 100,000 work experiences for our young people by 2020, CYE will support students in the Summer Youth Employment Program, support the expansion of a skills-building program, and more – all to better prepare New York City’s young adults to compete in the 21st century job market.

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.

The New York City Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) combats discrimination in housing, employment and in public spaces across many protected categories such as race, gender, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, immigration status and national origin by enforcing the City’s Human Rights Law – one of the country’s most comprehensive civil rights laws – and by educating the public on the law and encouraging positive community relations. Your contribution will help the Commission reach out to more and more New Yorkers through workshops, literature, events, and media outreach on their rights under the Law so they can come forward and seek the help they need in order to live and work with dignity and free from discrimination.

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.
