It’s easy to say “I love New York.” And that’s the only easy part. NYC is energizing, eclectic, dream-inspiring. But easy? Fuggedaboutit! That’s part of the appeal of living here, and why our City has been rebuilt many times over by the world's most determined and enthusiastic people. Nothing will take away our spirit, our grit, or our ambition to keep NYC the best city on Earth. Joining NYCNext is a chance for anyone who loves New York to be part of its renaissance.
Our mission is to help build the next New York—a better and more equitable place for all. We do that by harnessing our creative energy and irrepressible spirit to produce uniquely New York moments of joy, while also giving back to the artists, neighborhoods, and people who make our city home.
Whether you arrived here by birth or by bus, New York is your home because you are a doer. So ask yourself: What will YOU do? How will you create moments of joy? How will you help build the next New York? Will you join us?

A Fiscal Sponsorship enables us to quickly achieve our mission(s) by soliciting tax-deductible donations, applying for and making grants, hosting fundraisers/events, and operating mission-driven programs. By operating through a fiscal sponsor’s 501(c)(3) status, the administrative burden of having our own foundation is handled by GenEquality who also provides financial oversight and ensures compliance.
Yes, aside from some overhead we are covering for the Fiscal Sponsor. The group is run by volunteers who are donating their time.
The funds raised will be used to cover hard costs of doing the pop up events (producing the events, paying artists, etc.) and for donations to related charities (e.g. New York Cares, Actors Fund, Broadway Cares)
We are setting up a group to tackle how to help in this window. A few ideas have been floated including could we stage performances in empty storefront windows? How can we support restaurants who will offer outdoor seating with heaters?
The mission for this group of New Yorkers is to help build the next New York— a better and more equitable place for all. We do that by coming together in brand new ways and harnessing our creative energy and irrepressible spirit to produce New York moments of joy, while also giving back to the artists, neighborhoods, and people who make our city home. We will solidify our long term plans as we begin to execute and learn.
