Our Impact


It’s never about the buildings it’s about the people.

Over 600,000 people have participated in New York Says Thank You Foundation’s service initiatives in all 50 states and in 20 countries and we are privileged to have the support of some of the Nation’s leading philanthropic families, corporations, and children. New York Says Thank You Foundation has been featured in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Parents Magazine, and Family Circle. We have also been featured on over 1,300 television news programs nationwide including CBS Evening News, ABC World News Tonight “Persons of the Week,” and NBC Nightly News “Making A Difference.” In April 2011, we were recipients of the prestigious CNN Heroes Award.

The secret to our growing success is simple: We transform tragedy into hope.
