Our Organizations

Our member organizations are hand picked from among dozens of applicants every three years.  Our hands-on board of directors conducts site visits, analyzes proposals, combs their books, and interviews kids in their programs.  The result is the best of the best new youth programs that New York City has to offer.

Through partnership with the Catalog, member organizations

  • Expand program staff, allowing them to serve more kids
  • Expand development and administrative staff, allowing them to secure the future of their programs
  • Make capital improvements such as securing new bigger sites, purchasing equipment, and upgrading technology
  • Invest in program evaluation and monitoring
  • Make connections with new donors and sources of support through connections within The Catalog network
  • Gain donor cultivation and fundraising event experience through partnership with the annual Urban Heroes Awards Gala
  • Gain access to a network of like-minded organizations serving similar populations, and the ability to share resources and offer advice
