Big Apple Greeter is an independent not-for-profit organization and is not a part of the New York City government. We receive financial support from corporations, foundations and individuals.
It takes a big office to handle over 7,000 requests a year. With over 300 volunteer Greeters, 35 volunteers in the office, and two staff, we still need cash to meet certain expenses, such as insurance, accounting services, office equipment and supplies, internet access, web hosting, printing, and salaries. In order to cover these expenses, we ask that you please make a donation so that Greeters can continue to meet visitors from around the world.
