The New York Urban League is an NYC-based organization strengthening Black and underserved communities through education, employment, empowerment, and advocacy.
For the past 100 years, NYUL has worked to help New Yorkers live the lives they deserve to lead. From landing living wage jobs with good benefits to ensuring youth are on a good path to a fruitful educational career, the New York Urban League’s role is to strengthen underserved communities and ensure everybody has a seat at the table.
Currently, NYUL’s COVID-19 Family Relief Fund provides cash grants of up to $1,000 to families and college students affected by COVID-19. The grants can be used for rent, utilities, college costs, and other needs during the pandemic. These rapid response grants will be administered on a rolling basis. If you are able, we encourage you to donate here.As a part of the Flatiron Partnership’s commitment to NYUL and the values they stand for, we have donated $10,000 to the organization to help further their mission.
