Image for 92nd Street Y Named a 2016 Most Innovative Company

Feb 22, 2016

In the current issue of Fast Company, 92nd Street Y (New York City) has been named one of the most innovative not-for-profit organizations of 2016. According to the magazine, 92Y made the annual list of Most Innovative Companies “for encouraging social donors to give it up…on a Tuesday.” 92Y is behind #GivingTuesday, an international philanthropic movement that raised $116.7 million for charities in 2015.

According to Fast Company, the Most Innovative Companies list was arrived at after “a team of researchers created topographical maps of innovation across more than 40 sectors of the economy to identify the most relevant trends—along with the companies instigating or best capitalizing on them.”

92Y was joined in the most innovative not-for-profit category by Black Lives Matter, Sama, Watsl, Kids V Cancer, Humans of New York, UNICEF, Every Mother Counts, Woldreader, and Raising the Roof.
