HIDDEN NEW YORK | IN PERSON
Wednesday, June 1, 3:00-6:00 PM
Take the 8-minute ferry ride to Governors Island to experience this iconic park, its urban farm, and its flower-filled green spaces. Visit a bee sanctuary; experience Sam Van Arken’s artwork, The Open Orchard; and learn about land stewardship, native plant propagation, and zone gardening. You’ll meet with Merritt Birnbaum, executive director of the Friends of Governors Island; Guillermo Fernandez, the founder of the Honeybee Conservancy; and Arturo Garcia-Costas, Trust program officer. Because the ferry waits for no one, we cannot accommodate latecomers.
YOUR PHILANTHROPY | VIA ZOOM
Wednesday, June 22, 12:15-1:00 PM
What can you learn about an organization from its 990 IRS tax form? Quite a bit, if you know where to look. Carolyn Weiss, The Trust’s chief financial officer, will be joined by our vice president for donor relations, John Oddy, to highlight key issues to be aware of before you send money to a nonprofit. This program will answer your questions about good governance, spotting red flags, when a deficit is ok, and what we can expect pandemic-era nonprofit tax filings to reveal.
Our Women’s Health & Retirement series featured a panel of legal, financial, and mental health experts.
