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

Why Donors Choose The Trust

  • You want to make a difference.
    Whether you want to feed the hungry, educate kids, protect our environment, nourish the arts, strengthen families, or [you choose the goal], we can help.
  • You want flexibility.
    You can give now through a donor-advised fund or leave a legacy for future generations, or both.
  • We offer as much assistance as you want.
    Donor-advised funds
     give you complete flexibility, or for a field of interest, such as helping the elderly or children. You can advise a field-of-interest fund, or have us find the most effective nonprofits working on the issues you care about.
  • You want to work with experts.
    Our staff is nationally respected for its grantmaking, financial management, and excellent service. General Counsel Jane Wilton, and the rest of our staff, is happy to speak with you about any questions you may have about your fund. We work with government, other funders, and nonprofits to find solutions to the City's problems and stay alert to emerging issues and opportunities. Our board is nominated by five civic authorities and by our trustee banks for their knowledge of the City.
  • You want to fund the future.
    We honor the legacies of past donors forever, making grants to charities tackling today's problems from funds set up many years ago.
