About us

In high-poverty communities throughout NYC, many students don’t have access to the quality education they need to reach a bright future. 93% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. We believe a strong elementary school experience sets students on the path to college and career success. 

One school at a time, Change for Kids partners with exceptional elementary school leaders in low-income communities throughout NYC to provide targeted leadership, volunteer, and program support.

Through our support, our students are increasingly engaged in school, making strides in academic achievement, and developing 21st Century Skills such as creativity, communication, collaboration and critical thinking.

Change for Kids’ vision is that every CFK student receives a quality education and every CFK school has the resources to deliver it. Our partner schools become sources of pride in under-privileged communities with students poised for long-term success.
