Donate Now

A donation today is an investment in tomorrow’s leaders. Your gift will make an immediate and lasting difference in a student’s life.

Every child deserves the opportunity to step away from the concrete and into the great outdoors — the chance to overcome obstacles and realize their full potential as a student, leader and citizen. Your support enables these opportunities.

Our programs are designed to give underserved New York City youth a deeper understanding of the natural world and to provide them the skills, confidence and support they need to shape their place within it. Too many students have never seen the stars in the night sky. We’re on a mission to change that, and we need your support.

Contributions help our youth to discover, preserve and celebrate nature — from the Bronx River to the Berkshires and beyond. Your tax-deductible contribution will go directly to supporting and educating NYC youth, providing them the chance to learn and grow through experiences with nature and adventures in the great outdoors. Most of the students Christodora serves meet federal poverty levels to qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, and almost half are from single- or no-parent households. All our programs rely on scholarships and no child is ever turned away due to financial hardship.
