About the Mayor’s Fund

The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City, chaired by First Lady Chirlane McCray, is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization that facilitates high-impact public-private partnerships throughout New York City's five boroughs. As the City of New York's primary non-profit partner, the Mayor's Fund works to combine the reach of government with the creativity of the private sector. Over its 20-year history, the Mayor's Fund has helped cultivate a wave of partnerships between City Hall, agency staff and the broader civic and philanthropic community that advance innovation and produce measurable results around some of the most critical issues of our time.

Through these innovative public-private partnerships, the Mayor's Fund facilitates citywide community development to fill vital needs as well as to evaluate the continued efficacy and funding sustainability of its programs. Its current areas of focus include youth workforce, mental health, and immigration.
