The New York Community Trust connects past, present, and future generous New Yorkers with vital nonprofits working to make a healthy, equitable, and thriving community for all.
With your help, our Community Needs Fund is helping address our city’s most pressing needs.
It’s the perfect way to ensure your name lives on as a champion of the causes dear to you after you’re gone.
From supporting education to protecting the environment, you can create a fund in The Trust to make a meaningful impact on the issues that matter most to you.
There are tax advantages for donors aged 70-1/2 or older who make contributions from their IRA directly to a public charity, such as The New York Community Trust.
You make gifts, and get an immediate tax benefit. Then you recommend grants to charities of your choice: We vet the nonprofits, write the checks, and handle the paperwork.
