New York Road Runners (NYRR) is committed to helping nonprofits change the world for the better through running and fitness. Our premier events, the TCS New York City Marathon and the NYC Half are excellent opportunities for nonprofit organizations to raise funds that support their missions and services through our Official Charity Partner Program.
Nonprofits accepted into the Charity Partner Program are able to raise vital funds through runners looking to gain guaranteed entry into our sold-out premier events. NYRR partners with these nonprofits by offering them blocks of guaranteed entries plus other benefits. Runners can choose a charity they are passionate about and dedicate their run to a great cause.
Official Charity Partners are selected through an application process several months before the event. All charities must be registered 501(c)3 non-profits to apply. There is no application fee.
