Summer may seem far away, but NYC children are currently participating in Fresh Air programs, from weekly tutoring sessions to job shadowings to weekend retreats at Fund camps in upstate New York! FAF Career Awareness Program serves more than 300 youngsters in middle and high school. It also has new leadership programs for young women to develop their “can-do” attitudes!

No matter the season, Fresh Air children remain involved, excited, and forward-thinking. The Fresh Air Found needs loyal friends like you to continue serving thousands of New York City children throughout the year.

Every year, The Fresh Air Fund gives thousands of inner-city children the priceless gift of fun – and opens the door to a lifetime of opportunities. Whether it's a two-week trip to the country to visit a volunteer host family or a fun-filled and educational stay at one of our fund camps, our programs make for unforgettable memories – and open a world of new friendships and fresh possibilities.

•Just $10 will send one child on a bus ride to his or her Friendly Town host family.

•$24 provides a child with a week of swimming lessons.

•$42 provides a day of Career Awareness classes.

•A gift of $50 can fund a camp counselor for a day.

•If you can give as much as $91, you provide a child at camp with meals for a week.

The Fresh Air Fund is a not-for-profit agency and depends on tax-deductible donations from people like you to keep their vital programs flourishing. Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund has been giving inner-city children the joy of summer vacation with volunteer host families and at Fund camps, creating unforgettable memories and fresh possibilities.
