The New York Community Trust

Since 2010, The New York Community Trust has provided funding and guidance of our work to advance economic literacy through social work. With more than 2000 funds, The Trust, New York City’s community foundation, addresses issues of social justice and education, among several other funding areas. With their support, we are giving social workers tools to help people take charge of their finances, get the benefits they need, and live more independent and productive lives.

Since 1924, The New York Community Trust has been the home of charitable New Yorkers who share a passion for the City and its suburbs—and who are committed to improving them. The Trust supports an array of effective nonprofits that help make the City, Westchester, and Long Island vital and secure places to live and work, while building permanent resources for the future. The New York Community Trust ended 2013 with assets of $2.4 billion in more than 2,000 charitable funds, and made grants totaling $141 million. The Trust welcomes new donors. Information at
