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

11/21/17 - It's the Giving Season. The Trust is helping New Yorkers make a difference.

Thousands of New Yorkers (and fans of New York) amplify their charitable giving through The New York Community Trust, the community foundation for the region. This year, The Trust is offering generous neighbors three ways to make Giving Tuesday and the entire giving season.

At a time when busy people are overwhelmed by appeals for donations, The Trust’s three options help New Yorkers make sure that they are making a real difference by helping nonprofits that educate children, protect the environment, train job seekers, and much more.

Together, The Trust and donors can have an impact on causes, people, and places. Here are the three quick ways:

  1. SUPPORT OUR ANNUAL FUND: Can’t decide which local organization to support? Choose our Annual Fund and help respond to New York’s most urgent problems. Or, if you do have a donor-advised fund at The Trust, look for the Annual Fund tab in MyNYCT. Either way, help us turn more great ideas into projects that make life better in New York. You choose how we put your gift to work, supporting children, arts and culture, or New York's critical needs. 
  2. GIVE LOCALLY: Support your favorite local charities. Make this Giving Tuesday (and the days before and after) count! Not sure where to give? Check out our Grants at Work  or our press releases for inspiration. Or give us a call (our contact information is below.) 
  3. PLAN FOR THE FUTURE: Let Giving Tuesday be the start of the conversation. Support the future of local, vital, and efficient nonprofits through an enduring legacy. Talk to The Trust about how easy it is to leave a bequest in your will, or to make a planned gift. You can do something NOW to provide much-needed help in the future.
