BREAKING THE CYCLE OF POVERTY IN NEW YORK CITY.


More than one in five New Yorkers—roughly 1.8 million people—lives below the federal poverty line (defined in 2017 as $31,756 in annual income for a family of four). And another one in five struggles each day to stay above the brink.


While there are, of course, many social and economic factors that lead people into poverty, Tiger Foundation believes that focusing on certain key areas can lead to effective solutions to break the cycle. Through investments in our four funding portfolios—Education, Employment, Youth and Families, and Criminal Justice—in the five boroughs of New York City, we seek to help the city's non-profit human service community create lasting positive change that will impact families for generations.

Since inception, Tiger Foundation has provided more than $250 million in grants to organizations working to break the cycle of poverty in New York City. Our grantees have demonstrated consistently that when provided with the right opportunities and circumstances, people have the assets and the abilities needed to build brighter futures for themselves and their families.
