The Fresh Air Fund is an independent, not-for profit agency that has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million children from low-income communities in New York City since 1877.

Close to 9,000 children enjoy free Fresh Air Fund programs annually. Each summer, nearly 4,000 children visit volunteer host families in rural, suburban and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada. Approximately 3,000 children attend five Fresh Air camps in the summer on a 2,300 acre site in Fishkill, N.Y. Close to 2,000 young people participate in year-round educational programs at camp and in New York City.
