North Star Fund is not an endowed foundation. Instead, as a community foundation, we are sustained by the contributions of our fellow New Yorkers. How do people’s contributions turn into grants to support grassroots organizing for New York City and the Hudson Valley?

In our 2017 fiscal year:

651 DONORS MADE

963 GIFTS

206 OF THEM FOR THE FIRST TIME.

We pooled these contributions and other resources to make just over:

250 GRANTS

$1.5 M VIA GRANTMAKING PROGRAMS

$862,000 VIA DONOR-ADVISED FUNDS
