The After-School Corporation (TASC) began in 1998 with 25 programs in New York City. It has served more than 250,000 children in New York and beyond by funding, monitoring, evaluating and supporting more than 320 after-school programs in public schools, including 269 programs that are still in operation. TASC has partnered with 146 community-based organizations since 1998, including neighborhood settlement houses and the YMCA. TASC programs receive additional support from 30 partnering colleges and cultural organizations. TASC began with a challenge grant from the Open Society Institute (OSI), which pledged $125 million, based on the condition that for every dollar OSI contributed, TASC was responsible for raising an additional three dollars. To date, TASC has leveraged more than $490 million in public and private funds. TASC's goal of sustaining after-school programs long after the OSI grant expires is now within reach, as the field of after-school has grown and flourished over the past decade.
