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. Grants and initiatives are given to hundreds of New York City-based 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 for themselves and their families.
Robin Hood’s board of directors pays all administrative, fundraising and evaluation costs, so 100 percent of all donations goes directly to helping New Yorkers in need. The foundation held “Robin Hood Benefit 2014” on Monday night, its annual fundraiser at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. The event featured John Oliver, Brian Williams and Bruno Mars, and raised an unbelievable $59,808,714 for immigrant families in need.
