About The Trust

Ever wonder who helps pay for the after-school programs that keep kids busy and safe? The groups who plant the community gardens that offer tranquil spots in our asphalt city? Train the unemployed so they can take care of their families? Or feed the hungry?

Chances are, it's The New York Community Trust.

Through the generosity of New Yorkers, past and present, who set up charitable funds with us, we are able make grants for a huge range of charitable activity so important to the well-being and vitality of our city. We are New York City's community foundation, and are one of the largest private funders of City nonprofits.

Since 1924, The Trust has helped make donors' charitable dreams come true by funding the nonprofits that make our city a vital and secure place. We ended 2012 with assets of more than $2.1 billion in more than 2,000 charitable funds, and made grants totaling $136 million.
