Our Mission

Khan Foundation NYC is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization that strives to enrich the lives of low-income and undocumented high school students and rising professionals through college and career readiness as well as youth leadership development.

Khan Foundation focus areas include:

  • Increasing access to college through promoting awareness of scholarships for low-incomes and undocumented students who have academically excelled, but are otherwise ineligible for financial aid.
  • Engaging and support women to achieve their highest potential in leadership roles and higher education opportunities.
  • Advancing the careers of high school and college students through the Khan Professional Network, a community that cultivates young achievers to promote mentorship and foster professional development

Khan Foundation works to achieve social equality for low-income communities through education, increased awareness of leadership opportunities and community empowerment.

Khan Foundation would like to thank award-winning documentary filmmaker, Bryon Hurt, for accepting our invitation to our Fundraiser and agreeing to be 2016 Annual Leadership Award Honoree. We appreciate Mr. Hurt's generosity of spirit and time. We acknowledge his achievements in film and community and we wish him all the best for 2017.
