New York, NY,  10004-1607

Please contact our Development Officer at 212-537-5142 with any questions. 

Corporate Matching Gifts:

Please check with your employer to see if they participate in a matching gift program. Many corporations match employee gifts to non-profits dollar for dollar, an easy way to double the value of your gift.

Planned Gifts:

NCS welcomes special gifts to ensure that its vital services to homeless men and women continue into the future. As a nonprofit organization, NCS can be named as a full or partial beneficiary in a will, life insurance policy, retirement plan, annuity, or trust fund.

Stock Gifts:

You may also wish to consider the advantages of making a gift of appreciated securities to NCS. If you have held a security for longer than a year, your gift qualifies as a charitable deduction. Contributing stock is one of the few ways a donor can avoid significant capital gains tax. Stock gifts can be made electronically or through the mail. 

Donor Advised Funds:

Please consider recommending NCS as an organization to support through your donor advised fund. A donor advised fund (DAF) is like a charitable savings account that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support NCS and other charities through cash, appreciated securities and other assets.

In-kind Giving:

NCS has limited capacity for accepting in-kind donations. If you would like to make a donation of:

  • New, sealed toiletries,

  • Household items,

  • Prepared food or groceries,

please call our Development Officer at 212-537-5142.

Please note that at this time, NCS does not have the ability to pick up donations and cannot accept donations of used clothing, linens, or mattresses.

Fundraising for NCS:

You can also support NCS by starting your own fundraiser on Facebook.  When posting a status on the site, there is an option below the text box to support a nonprofit. Search for Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter and share with your friends why they should support NCS's mission to provide housing and shelter that is transforming lives.
