The Power of Permanence: 2019 Philanthropic Trends Report

Dec 01, 2019
  • Description

For 95 years, The New York Community Trust has served as New York's community foundation— managing charitable funds on behalf of donors and granting more than $4.6 billion to support nonprofits.

But where, exactly, does that money go? Which causes do philanthropically minded New Yorkers care most about? And how has their giving changed over the years?

To answer these questions, we mined The Trust's data and interviewed and surveyed scores of living donors to create this 2019 Philanthropic Trends Report, a first ever portrait of giving in America's largest city, including its Long Island and Westchester suburbs.
