  • Matching Gifts

    Matching gifts help maximize your support for the Orchestra. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. The impact of your gift to the New York Philharmonic may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and / or spouses. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please search our matching company database.

  • Donor-Advised Fund

    You may make contributions into your donor-advised fund (DAF) account and, subsequently, recommend distributions to the New York Philharmonic from the fund. Please contact your sponsoring organization to advise on a donation and be sure to read through their guidelines regarding gift direction and bifurcation.

    The tax benefits are received at the time of donation to the DAF. For this reason, and in accordance with IRS regulations, distributions from a DAF do not qualify to receive any valued benefits for membership or special events. All donors will receive benefits that have insubstantial or no market value.

  • IRA

    Your qualified charitable distribution (QCD) may satisfy all or part of the amount of your required minimum distribution from your IRA. Generally, a QCD is an otherwise taxable distribution from an IRA owned by an individual who is age 70 ½ or older that is paid directly from the IRA to a qualified charity, such as the New York Philharmonic.

    For any questions and to provide notice of the transfer, please reach out to Christine Mickletz, Planned Giving Officer, at mickletzc@nyphil.org or (212) 875-5845. Please contact your IRA administrator for their specific transmittal form.

    In accordance with IRS regulations, membership benefits are not available when making gifts from IRAs. All donors will receive benefits that have insubstantial or no market value.

  • Securities and Stock

    You may choose to make your contribution to the New York Philharmonic via securities and have your bank or broker wire transfer them directly into the Philharmonic’s account at Morgan Stanley. Please contact devops@nyphil.org or (212) 875-5381 for account information and to ensure proper crediting of your gift.

  • Electronic Wire Transfer
