For years, AVP ran its operation from a storefront at 647 Hudson Street in New York City. This storefront provided a place for community members to come in person and report incidents of violence and access services quickly.
By supporting the New York City Anti-Violence Project with a legacy contribution, you make a statement that you stand with LGBTQ and HIV-affected survivors of violence. Leaving a gift to AVP ensures we are able to continue to help survivors find safety beyond your lifetime.
4 Ways to Give
- Leave a gift that costs you nothing today
By leaving a gift in your will or trust to AVP, you make a commitment to anti-violence that will reverberate for years to come. You can make sure your family and friends are taken care of first, and then donate a specific dollar amount or percentage of your estate to our work. Simply provide your attorney with our official name and tax ID number (13-3149200)
- Donate retirement assets
Retirement funds are taxed differently than other funds and can actually be the least favorable way to leave a gift to loved ones. It’s easy to leave retirement assets to a charity, and you don’t even need a will! Simply update your beneficiary designation with your plan administrator.
- Make your life insurance charitable
Who will receive your life insurance? If your family doesn’t need your life insurance policy, you can make the New York City Anti-Violence Project the beneficiary. Contact your insurer and request the beneficiary form to leave AVP the whole policy, or a percentage.
- Direct your donor-advised fund
Similarly to retirement accounts, you can make AVP the beneficiary of whatever remains in your donor advised fund after your lifetime. All you need to do is update your beneficiary form.
