To promote charitable giving, many companies match their employees' gifts to nonprofit organizations. If your company has a matching gift program, your contribution to the Association can be generously increased and will further support the Association's mission. Simply request a matching gift form from your employer, complete the donor section, and send it along with your contribution.

We accept gifts of stock. It's a simple process. Next to cash, appreciated securities that are readily marketable are the assets most commonly donated to the Association. When you donate appreciated securities, you generally do not realize any capital gains tax. If you itemize your federal income deductions, you may also receive a federal income tax charitable deduction (up to 30% of your AGI with a five-year carryover) for the security's full fair market value if you have held it long-term (i.e., for longer than twelve months). If the donated securities were held short-term (i.e., twelve months or less), only your cost basis is deductible. Because of the potential double tax savings, a gift of appreciated securities usually has a lower after-tax cost than an equivalent gift of cash.
Planned giving and bequests are essential to ensuring that we will continue to serve the September 11th community and to educate visitors. Please call 1-212-422-3520 ext 117 for information regarding planned giving and bequests. Members and friends may support the Association in a number of ways. The giving opportunities range from gifts of cash and securities to life income gifts and sophisticated estate-planning vehicles that have favorable financial and tax benefits.
The term "planned giving" refers to any major gift that involves financial or estate planning. Such gifts can provide important benefits both to you and to the Association. The different types of planned gifts include bequests, life income plans (charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts), charitable lead trusts and gifts of life insurance policies.
