    Consider Giving the Gift of a Toxic-Free Future – Make a donation in honor of a special person.

    Include their name and address in the comments section when you make your donation and they will receive a personalized certificate letting them know a donation has been made by you in their honor.

    We also accept grants from donor advised funds.

    Donate Stocks and Securities

    If you own stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other assets, it may be advantageous to make your gift directly in the form of securities rather than cash. An outright gift of long-term appreciated securities is exempt from capital gains taxes, and you receive a charitable tax deduction at the fair market value of the securities.

    For more information or to make a gift, contact:
    Carol Sumkin, Vice President, Development at (212) 870-3490,
    or email [email protected].
