Funds can bear your name or that of someone you care about. Recipients are reminded of your generosity with every grant we make from your fund.
At The New York Community Trust, we believe in the power of community. Our Legacy Society brings together donors who want to make a permanent impact on the causes they care about most. The charitable goals of members of our legacy society are as diverse as the people of New York City, but they are linked together by their desire to create a better world for generations to come.
Endowed funds established by donors at The Trust provide sustained, long-term support for nonprofits. The investment income from these funds is generally used to support grantmaking.
