LADY GAGA AND ROBIN HOOD FOUNDATION ANNOUNCE CONTEST
TO GIVE

$1 MILLION TO BENEFIT FIVE CHARITIES THAT TARGET NEW YORK CITY'S DISCONNECTED YOUTH

 

Fans Can Vote for Winning Charity on http://on.fb.me/GagaRobinHood

Starting April 26, 2011

Winning Organization Announced on May 9 during Robin Hood Annual Benefit

Private Lady Gaga Performance on
Robin Hood Facebook Page

 

(New York, NY April 26, 2011) – Lady Gaga and the Robin Hood Foundation today announced a contest in which they will give away $1 million to five charitable organizations that benefit disconnected youth in New York City.  Robin Hood is a public charity which targets poverty in New York City by funding and partnering with the best and most effective programs to get maximum results. The contest will begin on April 26, with the public voting via http://on.fb.me/GagaRobinHood.

 

Disconnected youth is a term that refers to young people between the ages of 16 – 24 who are not in school or employed in the legitimate workforce. They may have had experience with the criminal justice system or have been in foster care. They aren’t getting the education, work, civic, and family support they need to be successful adults. A significant portion of these young adults are part of the LGBQT community.

 

"I'm thrilled to be working with the Robin Hood Foundation to distribute funds to help the youth of
New York City, “said Lady Gaga.  “NYC is my hometown and I think investing in these kids' future will go a
long way.”

 

The five charities the public will vote for are:

 

  • SCO Family of Services, which works to strengthen family ties and connects New York City’s homeless and LGBTQ youth to support services, including counseling, health care, life skills training, career guidance and counseling.

 

  • Lawyers for Children, which advocates on behalf of New York City youth to ensure they have access to safe housing, educational opportunities and fair and equal treatment, providing free legal and social work services and offering specialized assistance for LGBTQ youth, as well as teens aging out of the foster care system.

 

  • The Door, which provides New York City’s disconnected youth with a safe space to learn and grow, offering a full range of medical, social, educational, recreational and legal services under one roof.

 

  • Hetrick-Martin Institute, which prepares LGBTQ  youth for self-sufficiency by providing medical, education, career development, and HIV prevention services.

 

  • Safe Horizon, which connects homeless and abused youth to support services, including housing, health care, and government entitlements.

 

The winning charity will be announced on May 9 during Lady Gaga’s performance at Robin Hood’s annual benefit.  The winning program will receive a $500,000 grant over a two-year period, with the subsequent charities receiving smaller grants.

 

“As poverty-fighters, we are thrilled with Lady Gaga’s generosity to support New York City’s disconnected youth,” said David Saltzman, Executive Director, Robin Hood. “Right now, 4,000 New York City teens are living on the street. Some aged out of the foster care system, some ran away from abusive homes, and others were rejected by their families because of their sexual orientation. Robin Hood’s programs offer a lifeline to the city’s most vulnerable teens, helping them get off the streets and build stable lives.

 

Robin Hood will also offer Lady Gaga fans the opportunity to win tickets to her sold out performance at the organization’s annual benefit on May 9. Beginning on April 26, Robin Hood will give away two tickets per day until May 5 to the concert via the organization’s Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/robinhood. The winners will be announced each day on the page.

 

Lady Gaga’s past charitable works include Virgin Mobile USA’s “Free I.P.” volunteer program on her Monster Ball tour, which gave hundreds of lucky fans the chance to get VIP tickets by volunteering time and local homeless shelters; spokesperson for the M·A·C AIDS FUND, which empowers and advocates people everywhere to protect themselves from HIV/AIDS; the Japan Prayer Bracelet designed by Lady Gaga with all of the proceeds going to benefit those affected by the Japan tsunami disaster; and her support of repealing the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy for gay service members.

 

Technology for the contest was provided by Buddy Media and Network for Good.

 

About The Robin Hood Foundation

Robin Hood is the largest private poverty-fighting organization in New York City. We find, fund and cultivate programs that have shown they are an effective remedy to poverty. In our 23-year history, we’ve distributed over $1 billion and helped millions of our neighbors.  We only fund programs that can conclusively prove they are being effective and generating measurable results. Why? Because every misspent dollar is a missed opportunity to help low-income New Yorkers. We work closely with the organizations we support to help them to be more effective, enabling them to assist even more people. 
A rigorous system of metrics and third-party evaluation of these groups guarantee accountability.  Since Robin Hood’s board pays all administrative costs, 100 percent of donations goes directly to helping families build better lives.  In 2010, Robin Hood invested $132 million in 200 programs and schools, helping over 650,000 New Yorkers.  In 2011, expect Robin Hood to be there, once again, targeting poverty in New York City, taking from those rich in compassion and giving to the poor.
