At Let Grow, we hope to re-normalize the idea that kids can do some things – walk to school, play outside, make up with a friend, roll with some punches – without constant adult assistance. We do this by sponsoring school projects, neighborhood initiatives, and community-building all focused on giving kids back some independence. We also work to remind our culture that kids rise to the occasion -- when we let them.
To help this movement, please consider joining our network of Let Growers. The more people who Let Grow, the easier it is for us to find and support each other.
And also please consider a donation. Your money will be spent fostering a culture of resilience. Here's how:
1 - Let Grow is a new non-profit founded in 2017. We have applied for our 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, which we are hopeful will come through soon. You can donate directly to Let Grow now on a tax-deductible basis because our 501(c)(3) status (assuming we get it) will be retroactive to the date we were founded. We just want you to know that if for some reason it all falls through, you’d have to update your tax returns and work it out with the IRS. (Ugh.) Anyway, our address is:
Let Grow, 228 Park Ave South, #77212, New York, NY 10003
2 - Donate through another non-profit, AIBRT, that already has its 501(c)(3) status and has agreed to support Let Grow by serving as our fiscal sponsor until we have our own exemption. Details below. Or,
3 - Make a pledge!
Here's how to donate through our fiscal sponsor, The American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology:
