A Message from Governor Hochul
New York’s nonprofits help communities across our state, doing vital work to support those in need — from helping new parents give their children a strong start in life, to supporting our seniors, in all areas of life, and in every corner of our state.
As the second-largest workforce in the state, our 14,000-organization strong nonprofit industry also generates thousands of family-supporting jobs. That means many New Yorkers are able to serve in a nonprofit as their primary job — offering critical support to their communities year round.
You’ll see New Yorkers dedicating their time and talents to support their neighbors through access to affordable childcare and housing, health care services, emergency services, and so much more. Nonprofits are critical to making New York’s communities stronger, and to driving our state forward.
