2015: The City Where For more than nine decades, The New York Community Trust has helped generous residents support the causes they care about through charitable funds. Donors come to The Trust for the most effective way to give back to their community by making the City and suburbs better.

To make sure students have fuel to learn, we backed a successful campaign to bring free lunches to the City’s public middle schools. Now, we’re pushing for free lunches in elementary and high schools.

From the Arts to the Air We Breathe: Putting Our Donors’ Wishes to Work


Valerie S. Peltier, chair

he New York Community Trust is an extraordinary foundation with nine decades of experience in bringing about change. We address complicated, persistent problems, often joining with other foundations—including such  American icons as MacArthur, Carnegie, Ford, and Rockefeller. But we are different; we are a community foundation, focused on America’s largest city and its suburbs. We weave together gifts from a vast, eclectic group of individual donors, some living and some long gone. Our expert staff finds the best nonprofit groups to realize donors’ charitable visions.  We have been perfecting this approach since 1924, when Rosebel Schiff gave $1,000 to fund a prize at P.S. 9 for a girl who “earned the highest respect of her teachers.”

FIELD TRIP: Our board member Roger Maldonado (second from left) and senior program officer Natasha Lifton (in sunglasses) tour the Bronx River with a participant in Rocking the Boat, a youth development group we’ve been supporting. Based in the South Bronx, it engages teens in building wooden boats, rowing, sailing and restoring the river. .


We soon attracted the attention of others who loved New York. In 1928, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. gave The Trust $2.5 million to establish a fund in his mother’s memory. He not only wanted to make life better for those who were struggling, he also wanted to support the idea of neighbors coming together to solve problems through a community foundation. Many of The Trust’s donors are New Yorkers whose names you do not know, but who cared intensely about our City. One of our newest is Jane Kitselman, who died in 2015 at age 87. A gifted sculptor and cellist, she championed talented musicians, sometimes accompanying them on tour. Ms. Kitselman left us a permanent bequest to support small and emerging chamber music groups in New York (see page 26).

who could not afford training. We created The New York Community Trust Van Lier Fellowships, and 25 years later, thousands of musicians, dancers, playwrights, painters, and photographers have received muchneeded support. They have gone on to win a MacArthur “genius grant,” a Pulitzer Prize, and other honors. We are proud of this unique program (see following chapter). How does this relate to you? If you have a donor-advised fund, we hope you will join The Trust in some of our grantmaking or leave something behind when you are no longer advising. And if you have just found The Trust, contact us about your charitable passions and see how you can support our important work. Join John Rockefeller, Jane Kitselman, and the Weckers in making New York better—forever. n

Another bequest in 2015 came from Rita and Stanley Wecker, avid conservationists and birdwatchers, who left the bulk of their estate to our Westchester division to safeguard the environment. “I’m certain Rita carefully did research before selecting the Westchester Community Foundation as the primary beneficiary of their estate,” says her niece Mindy Stern, a lawyer in Manhattan. We are excited about putting our donors’ wishes to work. Our talented program staff will determine the most deserving chamber music groups, or those doing cutting-edge environmental work. Our craft requires creativity and local knowledge. Edward and Sally Van Lier wanted to help young artists; Ms. Van Lier requested we support young people




MOMA MOMENT: Artist Xaviera Simmons, 41, credits some recent successes to the “huge impact” of The New York Community Trust Van Lier Fellowship. Here she’s shown in March, 2016, with her acrylic-on-wood painting, “The Gold Miner’s Mission,” at the Museum of Modern Art’s Modern Window on 53rd Street.  





Neither the male nor the “ female gender box defines me. I merged my two looks into


something I call ‘tomgirl.’


Following a couple’s wishes, The New York Community Trust created a unique fellowship for artists—and 25 years later, their successes enrich our world.


aviera Simmons has had an unusual life, even for someone who creates sculpture, photography, video, sound, and live performances for a living. In her early twenties, she spent two years walking with Buddhist monks across the eastern United States, the Caribbean, and western Africa to visit key sites in the transAtlantic slave trade. Simmons’ career is testament to hard work and great timing. In 2012, just when she pined to try new painting techniques, she received an Edward and Sally Van Lier Fellowship created by The New York Community Trust. That paid for a year in the Studio Museum of Harlem’s prestigious artist-in-residence program. “I had a chance to focus on my art, travel to museums, and grow as a thinker,” Simmons says. Since then, the U.S. State Department and the Bronx Museum of Art chose her as a creative ambassador to travel to Sri Lanka. Most recently, the Museum of Modern Art commissioned a 20-foot-wide painting for the front window of its midtown

building. Standing by it on a recent evening, she accepted accolades from artists, tourists, and even a waiter from the museum’s restaurant. That’s typical of the success of many recipients of Van Lier Fellowships, which The Trust started in 1991 to help emerging artists. Since then, $17 million has been awarded for fellowships through 100 arts training groups, ranging from well-known institutions such as Manhattan’s Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater to smaller groups such as the Ghetto Film School in the Bronx. So far, about 2,000 artists have been Van Lier fellows. Their work has appeared from Broadway to Berlin. One received a MacArthur “genius grant,” another won a Pulitzer Prize, and a third was a Pulitzer finalist. Many now mentor a new generation of artists. In 2015, as the fellowship neared its 25th anniversary, a consultant interviewed former fellows and the nonprofit groups that hosted them. Participants agreed the fellowships gave them three crucial resources to establish careers: time, money, and training. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE










“Receiving the Van Lier Fellowship changed my life,” said Darius Jones, a jazz composer and saxophone player who has traveled widely since being a fellow. “I felt emboldened to experiment and become the artist I am today.” Ask Kyra Brickhouse about her fellowship at Rosie’s Theater Kids, an arts group started by comedian Rosie O’Donnell: “I would not have been able to accomplish what I’ve accomplished or stay afloat at high school,” says Brickhouse, who went on to the LaGuardia High School of Music, Art, and Performing Arts. All this thanks to an arts-loving couple—a real estate developer and a performer who appeared in the Ziegfeld Follies. And thanks to The Trust’s determination to follow their wishes.

Edward and Sally Van Lier enjoyed taking younger friends to museums and concerts. Sally set up a fund to train “gifted young persons who aspire to a career


dward and Sally Van Lier often recalled the early days of their marriage, soon after the Depression, when they lived in a fifth-floor walk-up in Manhattan. The Van Liers delighted in introducing young visitors to performances and art exhibitions. After Edward’s death in 1978, Sally told The Trust she wanted to set up a fund to help talented, aspiring artists, especially those with very little money. The Trust’s program staff asked experts how to use the money most effectively. The consensus: Artists need financial assistance, mentoring, and other help at two critical junctures—before they go to a conservatory, and when they’re trying to launch careers. These days, it seems the fellows are everywhere. During the 2016 inauguration of the Metropolitan Museum’s new building, the Met Breuer, visitors crowded around Vijay Iyer. He was named Musician of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association, he won a MacArthur Fellowship, and he was appointed

GI VI NG an arts professor at Harvard. Before all that, he was a Van Lier Fellow. The fellowship can make the difference between following a passion or giving up, and between staying in New York or moving away. “New York is increasingly tough for artists,” says Xaviera Simmons, “since none of us are gazillionaires.” Playwright Kristoffer Diaz says he’s grateful for his fellowship: Not only did he get underwriting to do research and produce a work, but he also got a $10,000 stipend. “At 26 years old, $10,000 was a game changer for me—that almost doubled my salary.” Kerry McCarthy, who oversees the program for The Trust, says the fellowships’ impact goes well beyond individual artists. Nonprofit arts groups say by hosting Van Lier Fellows from different backgrounds, they are adding diversity to fields ranging from choreography to sculpture. For example, Van Lier Fellows have infused Hispanic, Asian, and AfricanAmerican perspectives into New Dramatists, a highly regarded group that offers writing studios, rehearsal spaces, and mentoring for aspiring playwrights. Diaz was a fellow there 10 years ago, and that experience inspired him. A finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in drama, he returned to New Dramatists as a resident playwright. Recent New Dramatist fellows include Jackie Sibblies Drury, whose Van Lier project turned into a play about racial issues that made its premiere in 2016. Another fellow, Charice Castro Smith, has broken into a male-dominated industry and is working on a project for ABC TV. This year at New Dramatists, the number of applications for Van Lier Fellowships rose from 10 to 50, Diaz says. “I can’t help thinking Mr. and Mrs. Van Lier must be beaming somewhere, gratified about what they created.”  By David L. Marcus

in the arts.” O U R




The New York Community Trust hopes the Van Lier program will inspire donors to work with The Trust and its suburban divisions on creative ways to carry out their legacies. That’s what happened when Harold Valentine, a musician in Larchmont, wanted to support young artists as they made art and pursued careers. In 2005, the Emily and Harold E. Valentine and Evelyn Gable Clark Scholarship Fund started at our Westchester Community Foundation. Valentine Fellows include musicians, sculptors, and visual artists. Some have earned national recognition. Filmmaker Tara Clune is now a fellow based at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville.




Connecting to Mentors


n his early 20s, Niegel Smith lacked contacts to make it in the theater. Though he went to Dartmouth College, he’d spent his adolescence in Detroit—his father was a corrections officer and his mother worked at Walmart. During his Van Lier Fellowship at Manhattan’s Second Stage Theater, he reviewed scripts, developed projects, and worked as an assistant director. That led to a meeting with the legendary director and choreographer Bill T. Jones, who hired Smith as associate director of “Fela!” on Broadway. Recently, Smith, 36, was chosen from 110 applicants to be artistic director of The Flea, an edgy, off-off-Broadway theater that also hosts Van Lier Fellows.

Mastering New Moves


he son of a construction worker and a teacher in Crown Heights, Jean-Daniel John had no interest in dance until he joined a middle school production, where he tried capoeira, a Brazilian martial art combining dance and acrobatics. He enrolled in Brooklyn’s Ifetayo Cultural Arts Academy and, at age 16, received a twoyear Van Lier Fellowship. “It exposed me to different dance techniques—classical, modern, contemporary, jazz—I couldn’t get enough,” says John, now 20. Soon he was performing at the famed Apollo Theater, and for Michelle Obama at the White House. He’s heading to Howard University’s dance program: “I’ll keep dancing until I can’t dance any longer.”

rowing up on the Lower East Side, Jessie Montgomery wanted to play classical music but couldn’t find many African-American role models. After her parents divorced and finances got tight, a Van Lier Fellowship let Montgomery continue her studies at the Third Street Music Settlement. An inspiring teacher led Montgomery to revamp her playing style, and she went on to the Juilliard School. After graduation, she became a Van Lier Fellow again, with the American Composers Orchestra—a “true turning point,” because she started composing. She now performs around the world and finds herself a role model. (A girl from Missouri wrote to say she was profiling a “living composer’’— 34-year-old Montgomery—for Black History Month in 2016.)

THREE QUESTIONS | Patricia Jenny, VP, Grants

Perfecting the Art of Grantmaking We vetted 1,500 proposals from nonprofits last year and made more than 400 competitive grants totaling

In 1976, we were one of the first funders of Lincoln Center Education, now an artseducation powerhouse. We helped start the Nonprofit Finance Fund, which helps nonprofits better understand and manage their finances. That was in 1980, and it’s still assisting them. In 1996, we helped start the Center for Arts Education of New York City to help restore arts to schools after crippling budget cuts. In 2014, it helped win $23 million in additional funding, and that has translated to more art teachers in

public schools. And in 2015, we supported a nonprofit with a vision for the QueensWay, which would transform a 3.5-mile stretch of derelict rail line into a linear park with walking and bike paths in a part of Queens that sorely needs green space. Those are just a sample. How do you tackle issues that cross physical and program boundaries?

As challenges become more complex, we’re viewing problems more holistically. We have used our national environmental fund to protect 5,000 farms in the Hudson Valley, many of which are at risk of being sold for housing or shopping strips. We supported environmental groups to get the State to

commit $20 million to conserve that farmland. Meanwhile, we’ve gotten creative in bringing regional produce to City neighborhoods. In the next three years, we’re spending $750,000 to help build five urban farms on New York City Housing Authority property (see below) while training residents for green jobs. And, as we see rapid growth in the specialty food manufacturing sector in Brooklyn and Queens, we’re connecting small businesses with workforce development groups. At the same time, our Westchester Community Foundation is supporting work to convert old corporate parks and other underused land into farms, and our Long Island Community Foundation helps groups provide the Island’s food pantries with fresh, local produce.

What’s the connection between donors’ wishes and your grantmaking?

Here’s an example: Years ago, one donor left a bequest to improve health and welfare. A second donor wanted to benefit Queens. A third cared about poor people with mental illness. As a community foundation, we are able to combine money from multiple funds, so in 2015 we helped a Flushing organization provide mental health counseling to Korean immigrants—a population with high rates of depression. This support is making a difference in that growing community, and we believe these three donors would like this creative grantmaking. In the following eight pages, our program officers describe other ways we’re putting donors’ gifts to work. n

CAREER ROOTS: With our support, Green City Force prepares young public housing residents for careers in urban agriculture, clean energy, and other fields. Here, a Green City Force Corps member harvests greens on a farm at the Red Hook West Houses in Brooklyn. Those who complete the program get a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award to continue their studies.

HANDS-ON EDUCATION Employers want applicants with the right skills, and students need up-to-date courses and teachers with field experience. With our help, New York City Partnership Foundation is trying to change outdated State policies and underfunding for technical education. We’re also funding Per Scholas and other workforce groups to train and place students in high-demand technology jobs. Right: A Per Scholas classroom in the Bronx.

TRAINING HEROES Emergency medical technicians require strong nerves and tough training—but not necessarily a college degree. That levels the field for many young men and women who aren’t going to college. To open the doors to these jobs, we’re helping FDNY Foundation improve its EMS Academy in Bayside, Queens, and improve training.

Plenty of good jobs don’t require degrees, so we’re helping New

Yorkers get the training they need to work in health care and other

growing fields.

AFTER FOSTER CARE Every year, about a thousand 18to 21-year-olds in the City age out of foster care. Many have faced abuse, upheaval, and hunger. Now they need assistance with college, careers, and housing. With our funding, Graham Windham has expanded a program to work with these young people, their families, and counselors to identify goals, then create practical plans. Left: K. (second from right), is preparing to go to college; she and her adoptive family celebrate completing the program.

A NEW SHELTER SYSTEM We supported a promising effort run by Gateway Housing to redesign homeless shelters. Our grant will improve five shelters and create long-term, affordable housing and community services. In 2015, Mayor Bill de Blasio embraced this approach. (We made this grant using money from several donors who wanted to end homelessness and improve the well-being of New Yorkers.) Left: A rendering of one of the redesigned shelters.

LGBT HISTORY Julius’ in Greenwich Village calls itself “New York’s oldest gay bar” and was the site of a 1966 “sip-in” (shown here). History tells us this protest helped make it possible for bars to “openly serve homosexuals.” With Trust support, the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project is nominating places significant to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender history to the National Register of Historic Places, and creating an online map and archives.

MIGHTY SMALL ARTS It’s tough for a small theater or dance group in New York— especially amid a change in leadership, location, or programming. In 2015, we helped 10 small and midsized arts groups during big transitions. Right: Ma-Yi Theatre presents a children’s fantasy, “The Wong Kids in the Secret of the Space Chupacabra GO!” (We used a fund created by Lila Acheson Wallace to help Ma-Yi navigate a leadership change.)

Arts are the heartbeat of an increasingly expensive City, so

we’re helping artists find affordable places to live and work. We also

protect places that have shaped our history. KERRY E. MCCARTHY


SETTING STANDARDS What, exactly, is a “community school?” It’s a school that joins with nonprofits to provide social and health services, plus afterschool academic support for kids from low-income families. We funded the NYC Coalition for Educational Justice to advocate for standards for these schools: Strong and personalized instruction, welcoming ways for family members to get involved, and better use of data to improve programs. The City agreed to these standards. Left: Felicia Alexander, a parent, at a City Hall demonstration.

IMMIGRANT AID With our grant, the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs planned a $7.9 million effort, ActionNYC, to provide free legal screenings through community groups for thousands of immigrants. The screenings will help them work legally and apply for asylum, permanent residence, and citizenship. Left: Mayor Bill de Blasio announces the plan at a conference in Brooklyn.

We’re making schools work better for all students—with

training and coaching for principals and teachers, high-quality literacy programs, and parent-led advocacy.

ENERGY IN THE AIR In 2015, construction began on the nation’s first offshore wind farm off the coast of Block Island. How did this project win approval? The Campaign for Atlantic Offshore Wind Power, which we’ve funded for years, made a convincing case for developing this critical renewable resource. When the five turbines go online this year, they will produce enough energy to power Block Island and send surplus electricity to the mainland. Right: Recently installed wind turbine bases.

CITY WETLANDS Jamaica Bay’s watershed includes 20,000 acres of marsh, dunes, meadows, and forested islands. One of the nation’s few urban national wildlife refuges, it is home to hundreds of species of birds, fish, and other animals. But sewer overflows and rising sea levels threaten this treasure. Officials need data to protect these wetlands. We’re funding Restore America’s Estuaries and its member group, American Littoral Society, to compare historical maps with current conditions as they test soil, wildlife, and water quality. Right: Teens in a green jobs training program monitor conditions and survey bay wildlife.

today will shape the world we leave our children. ARTURO GARCIA-COSTA


TRAINING NEW LEADERS As a generation of founders and directors retire, New York’s nonprofits are facing a leadership vacuum. So we started a fellowship program at Baruch College’s School of Public Affairs to train the next generation of talented managers to step up. The fellows learn from experts and each other as they seek solutions to problems they face on the job. Left: Fellows visit The New York Community Trust as part of a weekly seminar.

WINNING NONPROFITS Our annual New York Nonprofit Excellence Awards, run by the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York, highlight groups that lead the way in management. “Other organizations learn from the winners, which is a key point of these awards,” says Trust president Lorie Slutsky (pictured at left at the 2015 Awards).

New York City has more than 40,000 nonprofits. We work to make

sure these groups—no matter how small or large—are well run and

have what they need to provide vital services.

HEALTH CARE CHANGES The traditional model of paying for care is giving way to a system that reimburses health centers based on patient experience and outcomes. That’s a major change for nonprofit providers, so we’re helping Primary Care Development Corporation and Community Health Care Association of New York State make this transition. Right: a doctor cares for a child at a community health center.

AFTER SHOW BIZ Actors, dancers, and musicians often struggle to save for retirement and health care. Manhattan Plaza, an affordable housing complex in Hell’s Kitchen with 1,100 residents over age 60, is their safe haven. With Trust support, The Actors Fund, a nonprofit, arranges services for older residents, ranging from free check-ups at home to Zumba classes. Right: Plaza seniors stay active in a free tai chi class.

As health care changes, we’re making sure providers can figure

out ways to deliver efficient, cost-effective services to all New

Yorkers, including the elderly and those with special needs. IRFAN HASAN


ADAPTATIONS FOR LIFE Danna (left) benefits from a custom-made chair, table, and iPad holder, all crafted out of inexpensive materials at Adaptive Design Association in Manhattan. With our first grant in 2002, this group began teaching occupational and physical therapists to build child-specific adaptations using common tools and materials. Since then, we’ve made several grants to teach others its techniques. In 2015, the group’s founder, Alex Truesdell, won a MacArthur “genius grant.”

A SMARTER EYE Children who have had retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer, sometimes must lose an eye to save their life. Replacement glass eyes don’t move in sync with the working eye. We’re funding work by Dr. David Abramson (left) at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center that uses flatscreen technology to make glass eyes appear to follow movement and light. This will help kids build confidence and social skills. (Our David Warfield Fund, which helps people with visual disabilities, was a perfect fit.)

Improving public health can feel like an uphill battle. But we’re

optimistic—and always on the lookout for new approaches to

solving complex and chronic health problems.







You Can Make a Difference. Forever.

Trust us to make

your philanthropy


GAY YOUNG, vice president for donor services


housands of New Yorkers who wanted to make a difference have set up funds with The New York Community Trust. Because of them, we’ve given billions of dollars to nonprofits, and we’ve helped change lives during the past 90 years.

Three Ways to Start a Fund

• Give now: Set up a fund to support

charities during your lifetime and endow it for future generations. Many donors regularly add money to their funds.

• Give later: Set up a fund through a deferredgiving arrangement. A key feature of many estate plans is a tax advantage now for the commitment of a charitable gift later. You can use Charitable Remainder Trusts, Charitable Lead Trusts, and gifts of life insurance or retirement plan assets.

• Wills: After providing for personal

bequests, you may include provisions for setting up a fund in The Trust or adding to an existing fund. You’ll save estate taxes and ensure the charitable work you care about continues.

Types of Charitable Funds

• An unrestricted fund helps with all

important issues. We are expert in identifying community needs and the nonprofits that can help.

• A field-of-interest fund allows The Trust

to make grants to nonprofits in the donor’s chosen field, such as education, the arts, the environment, medical research, or the elderly. Donors also can establish field-of-interest funds that they advise.

• A designated fund is for donors who

want to support specific organizations or programs, but realize circumstances may change. And if they do, The Trust makes sure the gift remains relevant. (See page 27 for details.)


• With a donor-advised fund, the donor

recommends the organizations to receive grants. By law, we cannot be bound by these recommendations, but we take them very seriously and approve grants to nonprofits that meet charitable program and financial standards. Once you decide what you want to accomplish, our staff can help refine your goals. You name your fund—typically using your own name or someone you want to honor. Or you can remain anonymous.

Assets We Can Accept Our attorney and Donor Relations staff can discuss proposed contributions to set up funds. Here are some assets that can be used: cash; securities traded on major exchanges; closely held stock; mutual fund shares; retirement plan assets; real estate; interests in limited partnerships; and literature copyrights. Note: We cannot accept assets that carry potential liability.

Fund Administration and Fees A fund established with us may be held in trust with one of our 11 trustee banks. Or it may be held by Community Funds, Inc., our not-for-profit corporate affiliate. Both operate as The New York Community Trust with a single governing body. If a fund is set up in trust, the bank handles the investments. If it is set up in Community Funds, our Investment Committee (page 45) selects the outside portfolio managers and oversees their performance. Our administrative fee is competitive. For more information, visit The IRS has classified The New York Community Trust and its affiliate, Community Funds, Inc., as “tax exempt,” “publicly supported,” and “not a private foundation.” (See page 27.) n

That means our money makes more of a difference.” MEREDITH: “Now our grandchildren are part of the grantmaking. They research potential grantees and learn about others that we like. One, for example, is the Fred Dolan Art Academy, which helps high school students refine their talents and Photo by Ari Mintz for The Trust

Tough Questions Make for Smart Estate Plans A top estate and probate attorney on why he regularly refers clients to The Trust BY PAUL J. POWERS, JR.


’m a lucky lawyer. I work with New Yorkers who have done well and want to give back. Many clients want their estates to fund a particular nonprofit

group. I ask blunt questions: What happens if the group’s leadership changes? What happens—and I’ve seen this—if the group gets into financial trouble and my client’s hard-earned money is used to pay off debts? Some clients talk about starting a private foundation. My questions: Do you really want to take on record-keeping the IRS requires? Do you have heirs or colleagues committed to finding the right nonprofits years from now? Again and again, I urge them to consider The New York Community Trust. The staff scours this region for the best nonprofits, then weaves together donors’ funds to make a real difference.

tudies show clients expect their advisors to offer expert guidance on charitable donations during financial or estate planning. Philanthropy might play a part in an inheritance, locked-up stock, the sale of a business, or other complex transactions. Clients need to decide what they want to support, how to fund it, and whether to involve family members. Do they want to give now, make a deferred gift, leave a bequest, or a combination? Since 1924, we’ve been working with lawyers to help clients with philanthropy. With our staff of experts, range of giving options, capacity to accept complicated assets, knowledge of community needs, and efficient management, The Trust is the right choice for thousands of generous New Yorkers. Contact us for

a copy of our tax-exemption letter, fund information, and suggested wording to help draft the gift instrument. Donors can set up funds in either The New York Community Trust (NYCT) or in Community Funds, Inc. (CFI), our notfor-profit corporate affiliate. They share staff and a governing board and file a single return with the IRS. The IRS has classified NYCT and CFI as “tax exempt” under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; as a “publicly supported” organization under Section 170(b)(1)(A)(vi); and as “not a private foundation” under Section 509(a)(1). This status ensures donors the maximum tax benefit allowed by law.

This also applies to our divisions, the Long Island Community Foundation and the Westchester Community Foundation.

Three Important Facts

• All our funds have an important advantage: If a change of circumstances makes literal compliance with the terms of the gift “unnecessary, undesirable, impractical, or impossible,” our governing body can vary those terms. That way, donors are assured their gifts will remain useful forever.

• We must review the terms of a fund before we can accept it.

• For funds held in trust as part of The New York Community Trust, a co-trustee is not permitted.

Creating a Fund . . . in The New York Community Trust

The Resolution and Declaration of Trust Creating “The New York Community Trust” (the R&D) is a complete trust instrument. It details the powers and duties of the trustee bank and the Distribution Committee (governing board). To establish a fund in trust with one of our authorized trustee banks, the founding document must incorporate the R&D by reference. Please call or visit our website for a copy. . . . in Community Funds

Community Funds is a New York not-for-profit corporation. A fund established in Community Funds becomes part of a publicly supported organization and is not regarded as a private foundation. The fund’s assets are managed by our Investment Committee. Please call for a copy or visit our website for a copy of our Certificate of Incorporation and bylaws. . . . in our Long Island or Westchester divisions

The Long Island Community Foundation and the Westchester Community Foundation are divisions of Community Funds, so donors have the same options described above. See page 60 for contact information. n




The People Who Make It Work Job description: Make New York better for everyone


ome of the most crucial jobs don’t pay salaries. Serving on the board of The New York Community Trust, for example. Twelve dedicated New Yorkers—selected for their judgment, integrity, and understanding of philanthropic needs—serve as the Distribution Committee of The Trust and as the Board of Directors of Community Funds. They provide an invaluable service to New Yorkers. Six members are nominated by civic authorities representing the public: one by the Mayor of New York City; one by the Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit; one by the Chairman of the Partnership of New York City; one by the Chairman of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts; one by the President of the Association

of the Bar of the City of New York; and one by the President of the New York Academy of Medicine. The Distribution Committee selects five members, and the President of The Trust is a member by reason of office. The Committee meets five times a year. The Finance and Audit subcommittees monitor The Trust’s financial operations. The Investment subcommittee oversees our assets, establishes asset allocation guidelines, recommends investment advisors and vehicles, and monitors investment performance. The Fund Purposes and Suggestion Review subcommittees assure we honor the intent of each donor’s philanthropy; they review grants suggested by donors to ensure they meet our charitable guidelines. n

If She Could See Her Legacy...


uth Adel Torgerson Leffler grew up in Queens and moved to Long Island, where she won three metropolitan women’s amateur golf titles starting in 1942. In her will, she created a fund to benefit her home borough. Since her death in 1993, The Trust has given nearly $6 million in her name to dozens of groups in Queens. Recently, we helped South Asian Youth Action, known as SAYA, start an academic and leadership program for girls in Elmhurst. Then we gave money to expand it.

Helping the “First Suburb”

America’s suburban poor population has grown 64 percent since 2000. Now more people live in poverty in our suburbs than in cities.


n Long Island, which bills itself as “America’s first suburb,” the statistics are staggering: More than 316,000 people need food assistance every year. Long Island used to be a haven for affordable homes, but no longer. In early 2015, Nassau and Suffolk had the State’s second- and third-highest foreclosure rates, behind Queens. Amid these chilling changes, the Long Island Community Foundation

is supporting efforts to reduce poverty. Consider these grants totaling $175,000: Mercy Haven helps restore food stamp benefits erroneously cut or eliminated; St. Joseph’s College is incubating the Institute for Attainable Homes to make more affordable housing available on the

Island; Island Harvest runs a senior mobile food pantry; Amagansett Food Institute provides pantries with fresh, locally sourced produce. Look at the glossy magazines for tourists and you’d think the North and South Forks are all about vineyards and glitzy parties—but those images disguise growing poverty amid the hedge rows. We’ve backed All For The East End Fund in its Building Stronger Neighborhoods Program, which distributed $50,000 in micro grants to 20 nonprofits from Riverhead to East Hampton. Peconic Community Council, for example, provides nighttime supervision at an East End shelter, ensuring the homeless are safe and warm in the cold of winter. n


for All For The East End helped Inspirational Triathlon Racing International, a nonprofit in East Hampton, run sporting events and healthy nutrition workshops for young people from poor communities.

Hidden, Hungry, Homeless


overty in Westchester is no longer limited to cities such as Yonkers and Mount Vernon; it exists in pockets of places like Mamaroneck, Tarrytown, and Ossining, where rents are high and working families scrape by. Federal poverty guidelines don’t capture the true need in Westchester, where one in three public school students is eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. That’s why the Westchester Community Foundation sees poverty as an urgent problem. Grants totaling $27,000 to the Westchester Children’s Association and the Child Care Council of Westchester help these groups advocate for child services and access to child care for working families. And $115,000 to Interfaith Council for

division helps make fresh produce available to 2,000 families who rely on the food pantry at the Community Center of Northern Westchester in Katonah.

Action, The Bridge Fund of Westchester, El Centro Hispano, Community Resource Center, Community Center of Northern Westchester, and Community Food Pantry

is helping poor families apply for low-income tax credits, get job training, and connect to services. “Because suburban poverty is so hidden, we want the voices of low-income families to be heard,” says Laura Rossi, who was named executive director of our Westchester division in 2015. Grants totaling $100,000 to Community Voices Heard, CSI Hispanic Parent Leadership Institute, Westchester United, and Advocacy Institute build the leadership skills of residents so they can make better futures for their communities. n

We invest in nonprofits that give quick assistance in crises while we revitalize neighborhoods for the long term.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements December 31, 2015 and 2014 (1) Organization The New York Community Trust and Community Funds, Inc. (including its Long Island and Westchester Divisions) (The Trust) are community foundations created to build permanent charitable endowments for the greater metropolitan region. The Trust, as the consolidated foundations are hereinafter referred to, is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (the Code) and has been determined not to be a private foundation under Section 509(a)(1) of the Code. The Trust administers more than 2,000 individual charitable funds, each established with an instrument of gift describing either the general or specific purposes for which grants are to be made, usually from income only, but in some cases from principal. (2) Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Accounting standards provide that if the governing body of an organization has the ability to remove a donor restriction, the contributions should be classified as unrestricted net assets. However, under New York State law and The Trust’s governing instruments, the assets are held as endowment funds until such time (if ever) as the governing body deems it prudent and appropriate to expend some part of the principal or appreciation. Accordingly, the consolidated financial statements classify all net assets as unrestricted, but segregate the portion that is held as endowment from the funds that are currently available for grants and administration. Cash equivalents represent short-term investments with original maturities of 90 days or less, except for those short-term investments managed as part of long-term investment strategies. Fixed assets are recorded at cost and are depreciated on a straight-line basis over the estimated life of the respective asset. Leasehold improvements are depreciated over the life of the respective improvement or the remaining term of the lease, whichever is shorter. Fixed assets are reported net of accumulated depreciation of $3,069,191 in 2015 and $2,799,355 in 2014. Investment expenses include fees for bank trustees, investment managers, and custodians. Grants and services to beneficiaries are expensed with approval of the Distribution Committee of The New York Community Trust (NYCT) or the Board of Directors of Community Funds, Inc. (CFI), and usually paid within one year. The Trust has adopted a constant growth spending plan for many of its funds. This approach allows spending to increase at a steady rate within the confines of a floor, a ceiling, and a cap. The spending plan is not applied to funds in CFI that are considered to be underwater, as defined by New York State law. At December 31, 2015, no fund was considered to be underwater. Accounting estimates are an integral part of the consolidated financial statements prepared by management and are based upon management’s current judgments. Actual results could differ from those estimates. (3) Investments and Fair Value Measurements Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received to sell an asset, or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price), in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. A fair value hierarchy requires The Trust to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The three levels of the hierarchy are:




• Level 1 inputs are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. • Level 2 inputs are inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities.

• Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs for the asset or liability. Accounting Standards Update 2009-12 (ASU 2009-12), Investments in Certain Entities That Calculate Net Asset Value Per Share (or Its Equivalent), allows The Trust, as a practical expedient, to estimate the fair value using net asset value (NAV) for commingled investments that do not have a readily determinable fair market value. In May 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2015-07 (Update No. 2015-07), Disclosures for Investments in Certain Entities That Calculate Net Asset Value per Share (or Its Equivalent). The guidance removes the requirement to make certain disclosures and categorize within the fair value hierarchy all investments for which fair value is measured using the net asset value per share practical expedient. Update No. 2015-07 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015 with early adoption permitted. The Trust elected to early adopt the provisions of Update No. 2015-07 and applied the provisions of the update retrospectively to 2014. Most of The Trust’s investments are in publicly traded securities or in commingled funds, including common trust funds that are invested in publicly traded securities. Fair value for these investments is based on quoted market prices and observable net asset values. The Trust also invests in hedge funds, and private equity, including private real estate investments. The fair value of these investments has been determined primarily through the net asset values provided by the fund managers utilizing quoted market prices for underlying securities, market values for comparable companies, an incomebased approach, or discounted cash flow projections. The Trust received gifts of interests in a limited partnership (LP) investment holding company and a limited liability company (LLC), which are carried at fair value, based on either an appraisal or The Trust’s interest in the net assets of the LLC. These valuations are reviewed for reasonableness by management of The Trust. CFI invests for long-term growth in real terms, consistent with a reasonable degree of risk. Donor advised funds that require a high degree of liquidity are invested in cash equivalents. The investments of NYCT are held in individual trusts at the bank designated by the donor in the instrument of gift. The following tables present The Trust’s investments at December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively: 2015

Level 2

The Trust’s investments valued at NAV include: U.S. Equities – Consist of large cap and small cap funds that invest across numerous sectors. International Equities – Consist of funds that invest in a broad range of developed and emerging markets. Hedge Funds – Consist of funds that seek to achieve equity-like returns with lower volatility than the equity markets as well as multi-strategy funds that attempt to generate consistent positive returns by focusing on opportunities that are not correlated to the returns of the overall markets. These funds may be redeemed at the net asset value at least annually, and in certain cases more frequently. Advance notice of 30–90 days is required to redeem these investments. Private Equity – These funds focus on buyouts—primarily of midcap companies. Certain funds of funds also have a small allocation to venture capital. As the underlying investments are liquidated, assets are distributed. The liquidation occurs over the life of each vehicle, which is typically 10 years. Certain of The Trust’s investments in private equity involve future cash commitments which amount to approximately $31 million at December 31, 2015. Fixed Income/Other – Consists of one investment grade fund that seeks to achieve a total return through a combination of current income and capital appreciation. Redemption and notice periods for investments in U.S. Equities, International Equities, and Fixed Income/Other range from daily to monthly liquidity with 1 day to 2 weeks’ notice.

Independent Auditors’ Report Distribution Committee of The New York Community Trust and Board of Directors of Community Funds, Inc.: We have audited the accompanying consolidated financial statements of The New York Community Trust and Community Funds, Inc. (including its Long Island and Westchester Divisions) (collectively, The Trust), which comprise the consolidated statements of financial position as of December 31, 2015 and 2014, and the related consolidated statements of activities and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related consolidated notes to the consolidated financial statements. Management’s Responsibility for the Consolidated Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these consolidated financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of the consolidated financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditors’ Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors’ judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the consolidated financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Opinion In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly in all material respects, the financial position of The New York Community Trust and Community Funds, Inc. (including its Long Island and Westchester Divisions) as of December 31, 2015 and 2014, and the changes in their net assets and their cash flows for the years then ended in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.
