Philanthropy

We believe education has the power to brighten young lives and change destinies. A part of each HERO NEW YORK purchase gives back to schools to support education. 

For the 2016-2017 school year, HERO NEW YORK will contribute scholarship funding, product, and monthly design/business workshops to High School of the Fashion Industries, a New York public school where 76% of the students live below the poverty line, yet 91% of students graduate and 82% continue on to college. 

Founded in 1926, High School of the Fashion Industries is the only high school in the Unites States that includes fashion, graphic design and merchandising/business programming along with the standard curriculum. For seven consecutive years, the school has received an "A" rating from the New York City Department of Education, and has been named one of America's top high schools by U.S. News and World Reports.
