About Us

Since 1948, Variety the Children’s Charity of New York has made a difference in the lives of children by providing essential funds to non-profit organizations in the tri-state area.  Our grant making practices reflect our mission “to support grassroots non-profit organizations in the Tri-State area whose programs use the arts as a catalyst to transform the lives of under-served children” by providing healthcare, education and extracurricular opportunities for thousands of children. Variety New York provides more than grants to grassroots organizations that are transforming the lives of under-served children through the arts. Variety provides a comprehensive, value-added set of resources that include technical assistance, evaluation, partnerships and collective infrastructure.

The leadership of our Board of Directors, dedicated staff and committed volunteers enables us to achieve the greatest possible impact for under-served children in our community.  A critical element of our success is attributed to the generosity of our donors. We receive tremendous support through various fundraising initiatives, individual donations and participation in our events.
