There’s still time to make a 2014 taxable donation to the NYC museums, parks and libraries you have enjoyed this year, or plan to enjoy in 2015. Several will even double your donation with a match from a corporate supporter or wealthy individual.
Here’s where to donate directly, bypassing fund-raisers who keep a chunk of the money they raise –
The Skyscraper Museum: This little gem in Battery Park offers exhibits such as the history of the Woolworth Building, once the tallest in the world. Donate here.
New York Public Library: Feed the famous stone lions on Fifth Avenue, and all their cubs, otherwise known as NYPL branches, throughout the city. The NYPL is the world’s greatest FREE public library system, but it takes money to keep it operating. Donate here.
City Parks Foundation:– This is the public-private partnership that sponsors hundreds of FREE performances and programs in NYC parks year-round, including the blockbuster SummerStage, plus fishing programs and more. Donate here.
Central Park Conservancy: Simply the world’s greatest urban park in the world’s greatest city. Double your donation with a matching gift.
The High Line – This park has set the standard worldwide for converting an eyesore into a jewel, and it needs money to open another section and help maintain existing sections. Donate here.
