New York City Mission Society celebrated 200 years of uninterrupted service on December 12, 2012 with a Bicentennial Gala at The Pierre. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our supporters for helping us reach our financial goal to continue providing critical services to thousands of New Yorkers in need.

New York City Mission Society, founded in 1812, is one of the oldest social service agencies in the city. New York City Mission Society helps children, youth and families in New York City’s poorest communities transcend the ills of poverty and create a cycle of success for generations to come.
The proceeds from the Bicentennial Gala will help to fund a $20 million capital campaign, a significant portion of which will go towards the renovation of Minisink Townhouse, New York City Mission Society’s flagship community center in Central Harlem. These funds will also enable New York City Mission Society to provide essential services to children, youth and families in New York City’s poorest neighborhoods, helping them to transcend the ills of poverty and to create a cycle of success for generations to come.
