Eleanor Belmont left her estate to The Trust in an unrestricted fund in 1980, and since then we’ve honored her commitment to New Yorkers. We've used her gift to help people avoid eviction, get mental health care, and much more. Meanwhile, her fund grows, thanks to sound investing and a sensible spending policy.

Benefits of an Unrestricted Fund

Give like a billionaire.

Our expert grantmaking team will harness your generosity. They do the legwork: vetting proposals, making grants, and ensuring that gifts get results for generations to come.

A gift that withstands the test of time.

No one can predict what will be needed decades from now. An unrestricted fund is insurance that your generosity will remain relevant. Future Trust board and staff—who have a tradition of excellence to stand on—will make grants in your name that deal effectively with issues that arise.
