Right now, we could all use a breath of Fresh Air — and a little encouragement. 2020 has been a tough year for children from New York City’s low-income communities. A quick note from you will help brighten their day.


Thanks for sending your message to New York City kids! Will you take a few minutes to complete a quick survey about helping kids from low-income communities unlock their potential?

Many children from New York City’s underserved communities have limited chances to explore the world beyond their neighborhoods. Do you believe it’s important that NYC kids have opportunities to explore new horizons and see a bigger future for themselves?


Children in low-income communities have lower high school graduation rates and are at higher risk of being out of work. Do you think it’s important for all kids to have access to equal opportunities to become the leaders of tomorrow?


The pandemic has disproportionately affected some NYC kids. Do you believe it’s important to support safe enrichment programs that help children feel engaged, connected and empowered — no matter what?


A Fresh Air alum recently said, “I can’t imagine my life without The Fresh Air Fund. Their model of youth development helped me become the person I am today.”

Over the last 145 years, caring supporters have helped more than 1.8 million children enjoy transformative Fresh Air experiences like these.

Today, you can help ensure that children from NYC’s low-income communities have access to life-changing opportunities that will help them pursue big dreams and become the leaders of tomorrow.

It takes a lot of time and resources to run Fresh Air summer and year-round programs. We rely on generous friends like you to provide these experiences free of charge to families in need.

Help ensure NYC kids have access to transformative experiences and growth opportunities by making a donation today. Please give as generously as possible.
