The New York City Opportunities Fund is a funding pool developed by the Overbrook

Foundation, the Surdna Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and the Merck Family Fund and administered by the Funders’ Collaborative on Youth Organizing.

NYCOF is open to New York City community organizing groups that are actively engaged in youth organizing, specifically in low-income communities, and will provide small grants to address typically unmet technical assistance needs and/or collaboration projects defined by youth organizing groups.

Areas of interests for these grants include, but are not limited to, the following: collaboration and networking between youth members; strategic reflection space for youth organizing groups, especially for collaborative campaigns; resource diversification and fundraising (especially non-foundation resources); membership building; wellness as it relates to organizational sustainability; and communications strategy.

Deadline: Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis. Dates for grant decisions in the program's first year are as follows: June 9, 2006; September 15, 2006; and December 8, 2006.
