About NYC Kids RISE

NYC Kids RISE is a nonprofit organization that provides families, schools, and communities with a way to work together to invest in and save for their children’s futures.

Building on the dreams and expectations that families have for their children’s futures, NYC Kids RISE aims to make attending and graduating from college more achievable for all NYC public school students—regardless of where they come from or how much their families have in the bank.

NYC Kids RISE manages the Save for College Program in partnership with the NYC Department of Education and the City of New York.
