There’s a day for giving thanks, and now there’s one for giving back.
For the past 160 years, The Children’s Aid Society has worked to help New York City's neediest children succeed and thrive. Every year, we provide a comprehensive range of services to more than 70,000 children – each of whom deserves a permanent escape from poverty and a chance to take part in the American Dream.
Join our mission by celebrating the tradition of generosity on this #GivingTuesday, a day we support the causes we believe in.
Children’s Aid is proud to join the esteemed group of #GivingTuesday partners. To date, more than 2,000 organizations in all 50 states have pledged to take part and encourage their communities to participate and give whatever they can—money, expertise, time. Together, we can make #GivingTuesday a permanent fixture on the calendar.
At Children’s Aid, we surround our youth with the vital health, education and family support systems they need to become healthy, well-adjusted and productive adults. We know these supports must be comprehensive and long-term – spanning all stages of a child’s development from birth to young adulthood – in order to be truly effective.
To meet this challenge, we focus our work on a collective goal: to inspire the children in our care to achieve college graduation. By insisting on this aspiration for all children, we embrace the promise in each and every child.
