Robin Hood Annual Report 2023




CORPORATE PARTNER HIGHLIGHT We teamed up with Barclays Corporate and Investment Bank at The HOPE Program’s CoolRoofs program in Queens. CoolRoofs is a remarkable nine- week training that shows individuals how to make buildings more energy-efficient and equips participants to build careers in sustainability. Barclays is just one of the companies that graciously partners with Robin Hood to fuel poverty- fighting work across NYC — through volunteering, deep-dive learning sessions, and smart investments in Robin Hood’s community partners.

In 2023, Robin Hood relaunched our one-of-a-kind partnership with Major Food Group: Major Good. Thanks to the generosity and talents of Chef Rich Torrisi, Robin Hood donors can now enjoy a unique private dining experience at NYC’s hotspot and Michelin Star-winning Torrisi Bar & Restaurant. Chef Torrisi provides exceptional hand-crafted meals for parties in the restaurant’s private dining room, with all proceeds supporting Robin Hood’s food programs.

Robin Hood convened experts, nonprofit and community leaders, elected officials and policymakers, foundation partners, our donors, and issue advocates to dive deep into critical poverty-fighting topics to foster learning, sharing, and collaboration across NYC. This year’s series focused on the urgent issues of child poverty, child care, racial equity, and housing.

Robin Hood’s Family Philanthropy program held its gingerbread decorating extravaganza with our partner, Win, at its family shelter in East New York. Over 25 Robin Hood donors worked with dozens of kids to build their dream gingerbread houses at NYC’s largest provider of family shelter and supportive housing. With homeless shelter occupancy reaching record highs in NYC last year, this annual event became even more special.
