In addition to membership dues, the BHA relies upon donations to strengthen its advocacy on behalf of the community. In fact, membership dues provide only 35% of our operating budget.
Please donate to the General Fund to support the BHA, or make a donation to our of our special funds below.
The BHA is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. There are many ways to give, including donations of stock, through a company matching grant, or through a charitable bequest.
Get more BANG for your charitable bucks. When you donate stocks you don’t pay capital gains — so all of your money supports the causes you care about, like the vitality of your community. Call us at 718-858-9193 for more details and assistance. We’re happy to help.
Does your company match your membership or general donation? Check with your Human Resources Department, and tell them we are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
A charitable bequest through your last will and testament strengthens the BHA financially and enables it to be a more effective advocate for the community. A bequest can be a specific amount or a percentage of your estate.
If you are thinking about naming the BHA in your will or trust, or if you have already done so, please call us at (718) 858-9193 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
