There are heroes in every crisis, from medical personnel in a public health emergency to rescue workers in a hurricane. Whenever the New York region faces a crisis, our donors step up to help their neighbors. Time and again, these hometown heroes meet the moment. The stories that you read in this 2020 Annual Report are a result of The Trust connecting generous donors and grantees doing critical work. We are honored to create these connections and grateful to all who make this a stronger, safer, and more welcoming community. You can read the 2020 Annual Report PDF or click the button below.
This report highlights just a few of the stories that illustrate how The New York Community Trust has made lives better since 1924. It also lists more than 2,000 funds in The Trust, select grantee organizations, complete financials, interviews with donors and professional advisors, and highlights from our competitive grantmaking program.
