Don’t just give.
Solve. Today and forever.

Together, we can make a difference. Contribute to our Annual Fund.

With your help, we can say “yes” to more great projects making life better in New York.

You choose how we put your gift to work: 

  • Children: Improve the lives of our youngest New Yorkers. 
  • Arts and Culture: Make New York more vibrant for everyone, from arts education to free concerts in our parks. 
  • Critical Needs: Respond to New York’s most urgent problems. 
To all who contributed to our 2016-2017 Annual Fund; thank you! 

Your support made a real difference for New Yorkers. Here’s a sample of grants we made with the nearly $600,000 you generously contributed:

  • More than half of those released from prison are back behind bars within three years. We’re working to stop this cycle. The Fortune Society got a boost from The Trust to assist New Yorkers who’ve spent time in prison. Participants are screened for issues that might affect employability. Then they develop career plans. 
  • We helped 21 organizations provide legal assistance and citizen action workshops and preserve Constitutional and social protections for immigrants and other targeted groups. 
  • With help from the Annual Fund, Public Health Solutions is expanding a program that provides coupons for fruits and vegetables to low-income families.
  • We gave the Asian American Writers’ Workshop funding to publish works by Muslim, Arab, and South Asian writers. In response to growing violence against these communities, the group will offer workshops about online security and writers’ rights.
  • Rockaway Youth Taskforce is expanding a leadership program for teenagers in remote Far Rockaway neighborhoods with high levels of unemployment.
  • Socrates Sculpture Park is preparing to expand arts in this important Long Island City park.
