14+ Foundation + Uber: 


We're thrilled to have partnered with Uber to provide new Uber users a free ride (up to $25) to or from 14+ Foundation’s Annual Cocktail Benefit.


How does it work? Using Uber's free iPhone/Android/Blackberry 7 app, you can request a pickup and a car driven by a professional driver will show up in minutes. Your credit card is billed directly for your trip and there's no need to tip, so you won't need to carry cash. You can even see the car coming towards you on a map!


Follow these simple steps to get $25 off your ride:


1) Download the free Uber iPhone/Android/Blackberry 7 app (or sign up at


2) Enter your information in the Uber app and promo code 14PlusNYC when you sign up.


3) Request a ride 5 - 15 minutes before you need one. $25 will be applied towards your first ride on uberX, UberBLACK, or UberSUV (excluding uberT).


Already a user? Try uberPOOL and get $20 off your first uberPOOL trip!


uberPOOL is the innovative carpool option from Uber, the smartphone app that connects riders and drivers at the tap of a button. You'll be matched with people riding along a similar route to get to your destination quickly at a price the fraction of a New York City taxi. An uberPOOL match guarantees a cheaper fare, and only adds a few minutes to your trip.


How does it work?


1. Enter the promo code 14PlusNYCPOOL in the ‘Promotions’ section of the app. 

2. Select the uberPOOL option at the bottom of the screen

3. Request and ride—you may be matched with another rider traveling along a similar route
