Donor Services

The Greater Manhattan Community Foundation is pleased to offer a variety of services and tools to help you make the most of your charitable dollars and enjoy a meaningful giving experience. Our staff is ready to help you.

Explore your charitable options

For as many motivations as there are to give, there are ways of giving. For a rewarding giving experience, we can help you find the best fit for your charitable priorities, financial goals, and personal preferences.

Make your gift dollars go further

As a public charity, we offer maximum tax advantage for most gifts under federal law. Compare the cost-effective community foundation alternative to establishing a private foundation. Through our careful stewardship and the power of endowment, your gift grows over time.

Learn about community needs and opportunities

\ Our Trustees and staff monitor our community's most pressing needs and greatest opportunities. We have deep relationships with local nonprofits working in the arts, community development, education, environment, and health and human services. We are happy to share our knowledge.

Work through your estate or financial planner

We'll work with your trusted professional advisor to design the charitable giving solution that's right for you. You'll enjoy the financial, personal and community benefits of strategic giving.

Stay involved in your gift

With our donor advised funds, you can stay involved in recommending uses for your gift. Or, you can establish a field of interest or designated fund to support a defined cause or organization. You can also give to our unrestricted endowment, to support changing needs forever.

Relax while we handle the paperwork

We handle all of the administrative responsibilities including investment management, due diligence, and grantmaking so you can focus on the joy of giving.

Create your legacy

We can help you establish a fund in the name you choose: to honor a loved one, establish a family legacy, rally others to a cherished cause, inspire them to give, or demonstrate corporate support for the community. Grants may be given in the name of the fund or anonymously. Our Legacy Club honors donors who have included the Community Foundation as part of their estate planning.

Connect with others who share your passion

We connect people who care with causes that matter, and to each other as well. As a Greater Manhattan Community Foundation donor, you'll have opportunities to network with other community-focused individuals who share your interests and passions.
