The Gray Foundation is committed to improving the lives of children in New York City’s underserved communities and partners with leading nonprofits in the youth space to provide children access to better education, healthcare and opportunities in athletics and the arts. In 2014, the Gray Foundation worked alongside the City to explore ways to expand access to higher education and economic opportunity for the City’s public school students. In 2016, the Gray Foundation announced a $10 million commitment to establish NYC Kids RISE and support the three-year pilot of the Save for College Program. Jon Gray and his wife, Mindy, co-founded the Foundation. Jon is also the President and Chief Operating Officer of Blackstone.
