NYC Youth Funders (NYCYF) is guided by a volunteer Steering Committee comprised of representatives from private, corporate, community, and family philanthropies and from the public sector. The committee is also assisted by technical consultants with expertise in youth development, policy analysis, and communications and members at large who plan and execute specific projects and events.

NYCYF is not formally registered as a public charity, but operates under the aegis of FJC, A Foundation of Donor Advised Funds. FJC serves as NYCYF’s fiscal sponsor, providing administrative support and financial oversight for the monetary contributions that the Network receives. FJC is a 501(c)(3) organization and charitable contributions to FJC for NYCYF are tax deductible.
