At Impact 100 NYC, impact is at the heart of all we do. Our engagement extends beyond the monetary grants as we actively support our grantees, from volunteering to fulfilling wish lists, such as these opportunities from our 2024 grant finalists: 


City Living NY, (CLNY) empowers NYC youth aging out of foster care (age 21) to transition successfully into adulthood by providing essential resources and in-depth support.
