Charitable Giving

Annual Giving

NYC Photo Journeys is passionate about responsible tourism and making a difference not only in the lives of our guests by showing them a fantastic time in NYC, but also our sisters and brothers around the world.

For this reason, we donate 1% of profits made from tours booked directly on nycphotojourneys.com to 100cameras.

The 501c3 non-profit organization is funded entirely by donations.

Their mission:

To teach kids how to use storytelling through photography to make lasting change in their community.

Their storytelling curriculum teaches personal development along with basic photojournalism skills, and the children’s photo stories are turned into sellable products.

All proceeds directly fund their own medical, educational, and lifeline supplies.

A check will be written out to 100cameras in Q1 of the following year, once taxes are complete for the previous year.

TripAdvisor Review Donations

Since September 2017, for every review left on NYC Photo Journeys TripAdvisor page, we’ve donated $3 to a timely charity.

  • In 2017, we donated to GlobalGiving.org.
  • In 2018, we donated to The Joyful Heart Foundation
  • In 2019, we donated to Robin Hood NYC

In 2020, our charity is Best Friends Animal Society, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on the ground in New York City, helping to save the lives of homeless pets and supporting other organizations in their efforts to make New York no-kill permanently. It’s an organization that NYC Photo Journeys founder Jessica Festa loves volunteering with.
