There are many ways you can fundraise for NYLAG. Some of the most common are by doing an online fundraiser on sites such as Facebook and crowdrise. You could also coordinate a small event with your family, friends, and your network at large. Some people find donating their birthday, or an anniversary, is a good way to give back to causes close to them. We encourage you to reach out to us and let us know if you’re planning anything. Contact Helen Murphy, Director of Philanthropy, at [email protected] or 212-613-5017.

Honor someone special by giving the gift of access to justice. To make a gift in honor or in memory of a friend, colleague, or family member, click the donate button on the header and choose “I’d like to make my gift in honor or in memory of someone” when processing your donation. If you’d like NYLAG to notify someone of your gift, please include their contact information in the donation form.

Many companies offer matching gift programs that allow you or your spouse to double or even triple your gift. To find out if your company participates, contact your employer’s Human Resource office, complete the required form, and return it to [email protected]. We’ll take care of the rest!

A planned gift to NYLAG can make a lasting difference in the lives of New Yorkers in need while providing tax and other benefits to the donor. For information about making a planned gift, contact Helen Murphy, Director of Philanthropy, at 212-613-5017 or [email protected].
