Scope and arrangement
The AIDS and Adolescents Network of New York Records comprise administrative correspondence, board minutes, publications, training materials, program files, fundraising materials, news clippings, printed matter and photographs. The records document all areas of the organization's activities, including provision of HIV/AIDS education and services to young people, training of social service and health care workers, advocacy of government funding for HIV/AIDS prevention programs, and sponsorship of youth activism in support of HIV/AIDS services.
The AIDS and Adolescents Network of New York records are arranged in four series:
- 1987 - 199943 boxes
- 1987 - 19998 boxes
Records in this series document fundraising activities by AANNY staff and board members. Files are arranged alphabetically by the name of the granting institution or by subject heading, and include correspondence, grant proposals, notifications of awards, rejection letters and program progress reports. There is substantial information regarding such important AANNY supporters as the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Ms. Foundation for Women. Also filed here are documents pertaining to the annual AANNY awards benefit fund raising event, such as promotional materials and records of donations received from attendees.

The materials in this alphabetically arranged series are a good source of information on a wide variety of efforts to provide HIV/AIDS education, prevention and service programs to young people, and to promote public policies, government funding and youth activism to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
