Launched in May 1992, Big Apple Greeter is an independent not-for-profit corporation governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. (It is not a part of the New York City government.) The program has a paid staff of two and about 30 office volunteers who all work to help the agency meet its mission.
Funding is generated through individual donations; corporate and foundation grants; in-kind contributions; and proceeds from special fundraising events. Greeter services are free of charge to the visitor, and there is a no-tipping policy.
