Recently at MetLife Stadium, the Giants Foundation gave a $30,000 grant to San Miguel Academy of Newburgh. San Miguel Academy of Newburgh is a middle school for boys from underserved families residing in the City of Newburgh. The school opened in 2006 and serves at-risk young men from fifth to eighth grades in the City of Newburgh.

"The Academy provides a safe haven for intellectual, emotional and spiritual growth. San Miguel utilizes small class size, extended school days, and an extended school year with a summer program to fight the cycle of poverty through education. Students who attend San Miguel Academy are provided academic, personal and family support to reposition themselves for success in their future endeavors," San Miguel Academy of Newburgh writes on its website.
