 Major Objectives

The New York Times Company is committed to assisting and supporting the communities where we live, work and do business. The New York Times Company Foundation and The Boston Globe Foundation support cultural, educational, community service, journalistic and environmental organizations in New York, Boston and other locations of Company activity.

The New York Times Community Affairs Department focuses on programs addressing areas that a news organization can uniquely affect, such as literacy, and issues that are of immediate concern to one or more communities, such as immigrant services in New York.

The New York Times Company is committed to a number of educational efforts, including use of its newspapers as a learning tool. Both The Times and The Globe are active in supporting the Newspaper in Education (N.I.E.) program, which promotes the use of newspapers in classrooms to complement texts and encourage newspaper reading among young people.
