Year-End Giving Guide: How to Support Us with Cash, Stocks, your IRA, Crypto and More 

The end of the calendar year is the most popular time to support your favorite causes. This year we’re making it easy by providing plenty of quick and secure ways to donate. 

With check theft on the rise, authorities say you should avoid simply dropping a check in a blue postal box on the street. If you must mail your donation, try to give it directly to a USPS employee or mail at a post office.  

But first, check out these convenient alternatives! 

Debit or credit card:  Give securely online via our donation page. Our partner, DonorPerfect, uses the latest technology to keep your transaction safe.  

PayPal and Venmo: Our secure donation page accepts these platforms too!  

Deduction from your bank account (ACH): Make your gift directly from your bank account here. 

Give by phone: Throughout November and December you can call our donation hotline at 212-873-6600 ext. 1012 Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM and give your information directly to one of our Development staffers.

Stocks, cryptocurrency, NFTs: Securely transfer assets of stocks or crypto/NFTs 

IRA: If you’re 70.5 or older, you can give from your Individual Retirement Account

Donor-Advised Fund: Direct a gift from your Donor Advised Fund  Learn more here

Drop it off: Swing by one of our Community Centers and hand your gift directly to our receptionist.
