In a World of Need, Why Give Locally?

October 2017 | Grants Results

We asked why it makes sense to give through The Trust for local impact.


“Nonprofits are local businesses and major employers. Investing in them means more jobs and a stronger local economy.” —Jason Wright, principal of Geer Mountain Holdings and Trust board member


“You don’t have to be born here to be a true New Yorker. It’s about whether you leave a mark on this incredible place.” —Marie D’Costa, Trust director of leadership and legacy giving 


“In many ways, New York City represents the best of America. With The Trust, my wife and I will help make it better for the next generation.” —Jonathan Shoemaker, donor and film producer
