Please join Youth INC for our 22nd annual Celebration to Benefit New York Kids, where we will celebrate the culmination of our Celebration Program – a year-long fundraising training program providing grassroots nonprofits with the knowledge, skills, and tools to engage new supporters, raise more funds, and deliver more opportunities to youth. We are excited to work with 14 outstanding nonprofits this year!

At this year’s Celebration to Benefit New York Kids we are thrilled to honor Jeffrey R. Holzschuh, father of three, longtime advocate for children in need, and Chairman of the Institutional Securities Group at Morgan Stanley. Jeff has been instrumental in activating Morgan Stanley employees around advising and supporting Youth INC and many of our partner charities to expand and serve more children in need in NYC. As a Youth INC National Advisory Board member and a highly successful leader in business, Jeff is able to bridge worlds within our city to better the lives of young people, making him highly deserving of our second-ever John C. Whitehead award this year. We hope you will join us at the event.

For additional event information, please contact Angela Chen at
 or 646-762-4565.

About Youth INC

NYC is home to some of the best and brightest youth in the world, but too much of their potential remains unrealized. While there are over 1,500 organizations helping children in New York, it’s hard to identify the best and expand their reach. That’s where Youth INC comes in.

We use a rigorous screening process to identify the most promising youth-serving nonprofits. Then we partner to develop robust fundraising capabilities, make influential connections, and issue grants that accelerate growth and drive sustainable scale. This unique venture philanthropy model has helped us raise over $55 Million for our partners, enabling them to improve the lives of over 600,000 New York City youth.

For two decades, we’ve improved non-profits for children, and together we can raise our city through:

  • Transforming over 140 nonprofits
  • Helping nonprofit partners raise $16 million for their causes
  • Awarding over $2 million in capacity-building grants
  • Placing over 250 corporate professionals as nonprofit board members
  • Training more than 2,400 corporate professionals on board service
