Individual Giving

Every gift made by individuals like you has a big impact on our programs and services.  

At the New York Urban League, we maximize your gift to ensure that our programs remain relevant and produce results that can change the trajectory of every life we encounter.


[1.]  Consider making a gift today! Donate NOW or mail your gift to:

New York Urban League

Attn: Development Officer

204 West 136th Street

New York, NY 10030


[2.]  Participate in your workplace giving campaign. Each year many companies give their employees an opportunity to direct a portion of their paycheck to the charities of their choice through workplace giving campaigns. You can help us serve more students and the unemployed by directing your workplace contribution to the New York Urban League. Familiar giving campaigns that may let you designate New York Urban League as the recipient of your workplace contribution include United Way and CFC (for Federal Employees). Check to see if we are listed in your workplace campaign.


[3.]  Do you have aspirations to run a marathon, climb a mountain, swim a long distance or challenge your physical abilities in some other way? Choose the New York Urban League as your charity of choice to benefit from these life-changing physical feats and get your friends and family involved. Contact us today and we can help make this a reality!


[4.]  Donate your birthday or anniversary to the New York Urban League. For the person who has everything or would like to share their cause with others, instead of traditional birthday or wedding gifts, ask your friends and family to make a donation to the New York Urban League.

Giving Tuesday

Following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, the world celebrates Giving Tuesday–a global day of giving. Charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Learn more here.

Matching Gift

Doubling your gift could be as simple as having your company match your tax deductible contribution to the New York Urban League.  Enter your employer’s name below to find out if your company has a matching gift program. If so, the search results will provide details on how to proceed.

If you do not find your employer through this search, contact your human resources department to also inquire about your company’s matching gift program that will match your gift to the New York Urban League. Every dollar makes a difference in the lives of students and families seeking access to quality education and employment.

If your employer requires an Employer Identification Number (EIN) (i.e., Federal Tax Identification Number), please use 13-1671035.


You may mail your completed matching gift form to:

New York Urban League

Attn: Development Director

Your personal gift and matched contribution will be credited to the program or event location that you designated.
