Your Part in Our Future
By considering City Harvest in your estate planning, you are joining a community that is dedicated to investing in long-term solutions to combat hunger in New York City. Supporters who name City Harvest in their estate plans are recognized as Future Harvest members and receive special updates on our work, invitations to events, and recognition in our Annual Report.
One such community member, Dr. Martin Nash, former Director of Pediatric Nephrology at the Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, reflects on the alignment of his personal values with those of City Harvest:
As a City Harvest supporter for more than 30 years, I believe in their simple approach: rescue food that would otherwise go to waste, and deliver it for our neighbors in need. I want to ensure that New Yorkers are fed in the decades to come, and that’s why I’ve named City Harvest in my estate plans. It means a lot to me that I can help provide a strong foundation for our city for tomorrow.
Another supporter, an anonymous donor who serves as a lawyer for the State of New York, describes his desire to contribute to the continuance of City Harvest’s mission well into the future:
When I started a new job, I made City Harvest the beneficiary of my retirement account. It’s a simple way to give back and to ensure that City Harvest has the resources it needs to help feed our neighbors for years to come.
Thanks to our Future Harvest supporters, we can be confident that City Harvest will help put food on the table for generations of New Yorkers.
