Mission

Our mission is to ensure underserved children in the U.S. have the physical tools they need to access education for a brighter future. We make sure tens of thousands of students start school with confidence equipped with the basic tools they need to succeed. New backpacks filled with essential school supplies are provided to kids whose families cannot afford them. During COVID, we pivoted to add educational art-supplies filled CareKits for distribution to children ages 3-8 years old throughout the year. For distribution, we partner with schools, food banks and more. As a volunteer run organization,100% of donations go directly to helping the kids. We purchase at volume discounts, leveraging every dollar for maximum impact. To date we have helped 150,000+ children in New York and beyond.

What we aim to solve

Supplies for Success envisions an equal education for all, in which no student begins the school year empty-handed and disadvantaged children in the United States do not start and stay behind. Most low-income children start school without the basic tools needed to learn, and getting school supplies can make all the difference for their future success. For families in need, school supplies are a luxury, and may mean a family’s choice between paying the electric bill, and spending on their child’s classroom necessities. No one should have to make that choice. We provide educational supplies for success so underserved children have a real shot at success.

Population(s) Served
At-risk youth
Economically disadvantaged people

100% of donations go directly to helping impoverished children through the distribution of educational tools for success in school.

We organize and facilitate assembly events, large and small, where the volunteers come together for the hands-on experience of filling backpacks with essential supplies.
Our programming promotes voluntarism, builds caring communities and presents opportunities for team-building.

Eighty to Ninety per cent of the Backpacks and CareKits are pre-assembled in our suppliers’ warehouses for direct shipment to our nonprofit community partners for distribution to the children.
