Big Apple Greeter is a small organization with a large, worldwide impact.
Since 1992, Big Apple Greeter’s free “welcome visitor” service has promoted New York City worldwide and helped more than 120,000 visitors discover the City’s ethnically and culturally diverse neighborhoods through the eyes of those who know it best – New Yorkers. With an increase in travel to the United States from foreign countries, Big Apple Greeter’s services are more in demand than ever.
When you support Big Apple Greeter, you are supporting the economy, communities and people of New York City. In addition, your gift:
- Helps us promote tourism citywide and encourage both visitors and native New Yorkers to explore some of the lesser-known but no less interesting neighborhoods of the City.
- Provides visitors – many of them in New York for the first time – with a Greeter who will orient them to the City, explain how to use the vast public transit system, share some of their favorite neighborhoods, and leave a positive lasting impression.
- Helps build bridges between New Yorkers and people around the world by promoting New York City as a friendly, inviting and manageable place to visit.
- Creates opportunities for New Yorkers to share their pride in their city by becoming Big Apple Greeter volunteers.
