Support the Philharmonic with a Gift from a Donor-Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund is a great way to support the New York Philharmonic and differs slightly from other giving mechanisms. 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.



Support the Philharmonic with a Gift from an IRA

The New York Philharmonic is grateful to receive contributions from IRAs. 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.

The New York Philharmonic is grateful for and honors all its generous supporters. 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.
