 The Academy has become one of the brightest lights in the city’s cultural landscape since

producing some of the most compelling voices in the art world today.

Recurring Gifts

Many donors prefer the convenience and efficiency of a recurring gift—no checks to write and no need for stamps. Your recurring gifts can be charged directly to a credit card according to your designated schedule and may be cancelled at any time. For example, if you choose to make a recurring monthly donation of $25, your next donation of $25 will be automatically charged to your credit card every month. Once a year we will send you a record of your giving history for tax purposes and give you an opportunity to update your gift amount or the way you choose to pay it. Arrange your gift by contacting Lisa Kirk, Development Director: 212-842-5977.

Matching Gifts

The value of your gift may be doubled if your employer has a matching gifts program. Please check your Human Resources department for details about a matching gift for the Academy.

Stocks or Appreciated Securities

You may donate appreciated stocks or even mutual funds to the New York Academy of Art. We are happy to accept stock certificates or electronic transfer of your shares. Please contact us for step-by-step instructions on how to transfer your shares.

Retirement Assets

Qualified retirement plans, such as IRA accounts, 401(k) and 403(b), are great assets for charitable giving, after your lifetime. If you leave these assets to family or friends, they will be highly taxed to that individual — but if you designate New York Academy of Art as the beneficiary, the assets will pass to us, tax free.
