About us

The Fund for the City of New York was established by the Ford Foundation in 1968 with the mandate to improve the quality of life for all New Yorkers. For over four decades, in partnership with government agencies, nonprofit institutions and foundations, the Fund has developed and helped to implement innovations in policy, programs, practices and technology in order to advance the functioning of government and nonprofit organizations in New York City and beyond.

The Fund seeks out, adapts, applies and assesses ways to enable government and nonprofit agencies to achieve excellence through its core programs—the Cash Flow Loan Program, the Partner Project Program, the Sloan Public Service Awards, the Sloan Awards for Excellence in Teaching Science and Mathematics—and through three strategic initiatives: the Center on Government Performance, the Center for Internet Innovation and E-Community Connect.
