Robin Hood is New York's largest poverty-fighting organization, and since 1988 has focused on finding, funding and creating programs and schools that generate meaningful results for families in New York's poorest neighborhoods. Since its founding, Robin Hood has raised more than $2.5 billion in dollars, goods and services to provide hundreds of the most effective soup kitchens, homeless shelters, schools, job-training programs and other vital services that give New York’s neediest citizens the tools they need to build better lives. In addition, Robin Hood's board of directors pays all administrative, fundraising and evaluation costs, so 100% of our donation goes directly to organizations helping New Yorkers in need.

Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust is the nation's largest private Holocaust memorial and museum, and New York City's premiere Holocaust resource. The core exhibit is organized around three basic themes: Jewish Life a Century Ago, The War Against the Jews, and Jewish Renewal. The 2,000 photographs, 800 historical and cultural artifacts, and 24 original documentary films in the Museum's core exhibition represent just a small portion of the approximately 15,000 objects and 3,600 oral histories in the Museum's collection. Visitors, especially those with no immediate association with Judaism or the Holocaust, are prompted to make personal connections to the culture and history of others while reflecting upon their own roles in society in new ways.

Mission and Vision:  Chess in the Schools is a not-for-profit educational organization dedicated to improving academic performance and building self-esteem among inner-city public school children.   Chess is a powerful teaching tool that can break through barriers to help the most disadvantaged students learn skills that translate into academic and lifelong success. Over the past two decades, we have seen how an effective chess education curriculum can change lives. But, learning chess is just the first stebut no one will dispute that the numbers are unsatisfactory. This appallingly low statistic is even lower for minority students and those who live in poverty. Many education experts agree that increasing the high school graduation rate starts with early intervention. Chess in the Schools believes that elementary school students need to develop basic analytical skills that lead to academic success throughout their school career. To develop these skills, Chess in the Schools teaches the complex game of chess to thousands of New York City public school children every year.   The academic benefits of learning chess are extensive. There are a number of studies that support the belief that chess enhances memory, boosts spatial and numerical skills, increases problem-solving capabilities, and strengthens logical thinking. (Dullea 1982; Margulies 1991; Liptrap 1998; Ferguson 2000)   Students who learn chess through the Chess in the Schools are using the skills acquired through chess to achieve academic success, more likely to attend school on a regular basis, and creating lasting friendships during chess tournaments and after-school clubs.
