The Street Vendor Project is a small, non-profit organization that relies on contributions from individuals who care about our mission. Most of our funding come from our members, from a few private foundations, and from people like you. Do you care about the people who struggle to sell things on the streets of New York City and believe they deserve a chance to earn a living for themselves and their families? If so, please consider even the smallest donation.

Your money will be used to directly support this movement - for example, to keep our computers working and our lights on, to pay the rent in our office where we have meetings and where vendors come visit us every day, and to pay the salaries of our small staff.

To make a tax-deductible donation, please send a check payable to the Urban Justice Center to:

Street Vendor Project
Urban Justice Center
40 Rector St., 9th Floor
New York, NY 10006
