Other Ways to Give

A gift to Manhattan Youth is a way for you and your loved ones to express your concern for the future of our community, your desire to help our community's children and families, and  your confidence in our ability to effectively identify and address our community's needs.

Some forms of giving may be more advantageous for you depending on the financial and life circumstances of you or your family, but every gift is a philanthropic act and is deeply appreciated. You can begin planning your gift by contacting Yessenia Chimelis, Assistant to Executive Director, at 212-766-1104 ext. 303, or send Yessenia an e-mail.

Giving Other than Cash

Donate stocks or bonds
Donating appreciated stocks or bonds that you have held for at least one year will neutralize capital gains and provide you with an immediate income tax deduction for the full fair market value. 

Donate tangible personal property
Making a donation of real estate, collectibles, art work, or antiques will provide you with an income tax deduction based upon a verified appraisal that you provide. We reserve the right to accept or decline gifts including certain tangible property and gifts with certain restrictions, so please call us.

Making a Bequest

Neutralize taxes on your retirement

Establishing a Trust

Enjoy the benefits of a trust
Build your charitable portfolio and Manhattan Youth's future with a charitable trust. It is among the most flexible ways to establish a gift for our future, while generating income for your financial security and that of your family. 

Create a hedge against inflation
You can create a Charitable Remainder Unitrust that provides cash flow for you now, or beginning at a future date, and gives you a current income tax deduction. 

Reduce taxes on assets you pass to your loved ones
Creating a Charitable Lead Trust that pays income to Manhattan Youth for a specific term of years will give you an immediate tax deduction, and your loved ones will receive the trust assets at the expiration of the trust term.
