You can give cash, but also publicly traded stock, retirement plan assets, closely held stock, and life insurance. We’re experts in working with charitable remainder trusts and charitable lead trusts, and dissolving private foundations into funds at The Trust.
Do you want to start a fund for giving today? Or defer your gifts through a will or planned giving vehicle? We have funds that allow you to do either—or both.
Would you like to fund thoughtful, creative approaches to New York’s problems? We’ve developed an expertise in identifying community needs as well as the nonprofits that can help. Your unrestricted fund allows us the flexibility to identify and address our region’s challenges.
Are you passionate about education, human rights, the arts, or something else? You can direct that your gift be used to address the issues you care about through a Field-of-Interest Fund.
Do you want to support specific organizations or programs? A designated fund with The Trust will do just that. It also ensures that your gift remains relevant over the years.
With a donor-advised fund, you and anyone you appoint as an advisor can easily recommend organizations to receive grants.
